In this class, students will develop a variety of skills necessary for undertaking writing feature stories and getting them published. Students will learn to identify strong story ideas, query magazine editors, and turn ideas into finished products ready for submission. Finding the story is a process that unfolds throughout the writing process of gathering information and facts (through observation, research, and interviews), developing a strong lead, selecting and structuring the material, and revising for clarity and interest. We will examine published feature stories for style and slant, voice and technique, but the primary emphasis will be on student writing. Works in progress will be discussed within a constructive workshop format. Part of the Certificate of Journalism (offered online) but open to all.
