Writing for Magazines
In this course, we will use The New Yorker, Harper's, The New York Times Magazine, and other periodicals to study narrative techniques of reporters, essayists, critics, cartoonists, poets, and fiction writers. Students will practice writing for a mass market, experimenting with a variety of styles and topics. Conferences will focus on submitting work for publication. Hard copies (no digital versions) of The New Yorker, Harper's, and the Sunday issue of The New York Times are required texts for the class.
