English Cwwr. Narrative Nonfiction. Writing Wrongs: Women, Gender and Journalism: Workshop

    Instructor: Susan Faludi
    Thursday, 3:00-5:45pm | Location: Lamont 401
    Course Website
    Enrollment: Limited to 12 students

    This is a workshop class where students will learn the art of literary longform journalism and compose stories that take on questions of gender, feminism, sexuality and power, while simultaneously exploring how the media represents gender and learning the history of women in journalism. No profession has been as important to feminists in challenging society than journalism--even as journalism has been historically resistant to a feminist vision. Students will master the fundaments of great reporting and writing—interviewing, structure, voice, style, and ethics—while crafting their own magazine-style stories that grapple with ground-level gender dramas.

    Supplemental Application Information: Please submit a writing sample of about 1,000 words in any genre that showcases your creative abilities, along with a note about why you want to take the class and what your writing interests are. If you have previous journalism/literary writing experience, please include that, too.

    Apply via Submittable (deadline: Saturday, January 15 at 11:59pm ET)
