ENG 125 - An Introduction to Magazine Writing


This course will focus on longer-length, non-fiction articles; it is not a course in creative writing. Students will read and analyze articles in mainstream consumer and trade publications, receiving feedback from professional freelance writers. Included are tips for breaking into the field of freelance writing, as well as the different types of rights pertinent to authors and publishers. Covered also are the writing of query letters, the formal proposal of article ideas, source lists, and the conducting of interviews.

1 semester 3 credits.
