Reporting, Researching, and Writing the News

Focus on the basic principles of news reporting with an emphasis on learning by doing. Examine what news is, who defines it, and how to write it. Most sessions combine principle with practice and classroom discussion with in-class writing and out-of-class assignments. Topics include determining the focus of the story, covering all the angles, interviewing, researching (including online), organizing the material, finding and writing the lead, rewriting and editing, working on deadline, coping with controversy, and remaining objective.
