Becoming a Sports Writer

In this course, you and your classmates will conceive, write, develop, and refine a multiplatform sports magazine. You will identify what makes a good story and what stories are best told via which platforms. Which stories are best told in a long written piece, which by video narrative, and which by a simple Tweet? This class will build the magazine from idea stage to finished product. You will learn to refine your material and your viewpoint, so that your stories are expressed in a concise, clear, and compelling way. By writing drafts that are critiqued and edited, you will leave the class having produced high-quality profiles, opinion pieces, business stories, video scripts, or other writing about sports.
