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I confess to ambivalence over the name of the course, however: the notion of “print media” is an outdated one.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:
- a repository for information about the class (syllabus, assignments, announcements);
- a platform to discuss assigned readings and current industry trends
- a playground for you to explore and experiment with writing for a blog, and to learn the technical skills of posting to a blog.
