Credits: 3

This course teaches aspiring writers and journalists the art of composing music, theater, or movie reviews, features, news stories, and opinion pieces for print and online media. Whether your first love is attending live rock shows or catching the latest indie movie or Broadway play, this course takes you through the sometimes difficult process of gathering the facts and interviews necessary to piece together stories about artists and events to sell to entertainment magazines and other media sources. The class works on structure, coherence, and style as well as voice. What goes into landing an interview with a top artist or celebrity? How do you get the backstage access that will give your feature story the color it deserves? How do you let go of being a fan and let the journalist out?
