Launch Your Longform Journalism Project

Intermediate | Great long-form journalism is critical to our understanding of the world. But how do we transform the facts into riveting stories? In this class, we’ll dissect masterful pieces by the likes of Joan Didion, David Grann, and Linda Villarosa, and the six steps to writing a great true tale. Students will come away with a roadmap for making their idea a reality. Students should have some background in journalism or nonfiction. Reading assignments will be sent out ahead of class.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through Spring quarter 2021.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
