Come hear about student forum ENG420: DIGITAL JOURNALISM, a semester-long course where we will focus on producing online content and developing our portfolio. This writing-intensive seminar will introduce students to a variety of forms, from the interview, to the profile, to data-based storytelling. We will be skyping with numerous alumni in the industry, and your work will have the opportunity to be published online via Method Magazine. Multi-media projects will be highly encouraged.
Sophia Jennings ’16 and Ben Romero ’16 will be leading the student forum.
Date: Monday, January 25
Place: 41 Wyllys, Room 113

From Elana Rosenthal ’15:
Never written a paper for college? Feel like you’ve never written a paper for college? Apply now for a Writing Mentor, a personal tutor who will meet with you privately to help you with your writing. Mentors can help you at all stages of the writing process—generating ideas; structuring your essay; improving grammar, clarity, and style; or simply managing your time—and will meet with you weekly to address all of your writing worries and woes. If you participate, a specially trained sophomore, junior, or senior will meet with you throughout the semester.
We work with students of all writing abilities and in all disciplines, and all services are, of course, free.
Applications are available here. Please apply by midnight on Monday, September 21st. We will notify new mentees by the 24th, and hold a reception for new mentor-mentee pairs on Friday, September 25th, from 4:15 p.m. to 5:15 p.m. in Downey Lounge.
Deadline: Monday, September 21 at midnight
