Welcome to J70, spring 2011

Posted by Jill Van Wyke

Welcome back to Drake! I hope you all had a relaxing break. I’m looking forward to a great semester in J70, Print Media Editing, one of my favorite classes to teach.

I confess to ambivalence over the name of the course, however: the notion of “print media” is an outdated one. We will be looking at editing for print and online.

This blog will serve three purposes for us this semester:

  1. a repository for information about the class (syllabus, assignments, announcements);
  2. a platform to discuss assigned readings  and current industry trends
  3. a playground for you to explore and experiment with writing for a blog, and to learn the technical skills of posting to a blog.
