First Person Journalism

Spring 2020

Taught By: Matthew Melucci

Section: A

CRN: 3813

Credits: 3

The New First-Person Journalism – that intersection of technology, reporting and first-person driven creative writing is a signature form for our age. With the advent of blogs, social media applications and self-publishing tools, more writers and, frankly, non-writers are taking to journalism while more journalists are experimenting with highly creative forms of storytelling on their own. This New Journalism seems to have become particularly popular in an age of reality and socialized media and our evolving technologies. People are taking to social media, mobile and out-of-box publishing and media tools and leveraging multi-media components to share their personal stories,circumstances and realities and writers who are serious about the form can not only learn to better write personal accounts and build social storylines but also prepare multi-media exposes all while learning the ins-and-outs of telling stories in a digital universe.
