Wesleyan’s Writing Certificate and Film Studies are offering a new course, Writing About Film For Modern Media. The course is taught by journalist Sam Wasson ’03 and will be offered in the fall.
DATE CHANGE FOR POI applications: submissions are due Friday, April 8th, not the 1st. See Film Studies course description for details. For certificate information, contact Professor Anne Greene at agreene_at_wesleyan.edu.
In this course students will practice writing about movies for various modes of new journalism: newsprint, books, anthologies, magazines, journals and all forms of electronic media. Suitable topics will include examining movies for purposes of film criticism, history, cultural issues, and non-fiction modes, with the goal of publishing. Regular writing assignments on specific films (as well as films of students’ choice) will be accompanied by readings and screenings.
