In this class taught by New York Times Magazine journalist Jazmine Hughes, students will learn the key skills of profile writing: insight, empathy and the art of asking just one more question. Students will study the work of celebrated and contemporary profile writers -- Allison P. Davis, Vinson Cunningham, Rachel Kaadzi Ghansah, Hilton Als -- while considering the practices and shifting purposes of a magazine profile in contemporary media landscapes. In this reporting and writing intensive course, students will write, draft and develop a profile, of magazine length, on their own chosen subjects, and will receive edits and consistent feedback.
