MCM 4309 - Feature Writing

Credits: 3 hrs
In this course students write news stories without using the inverted pyramid. Feature writing offers students the chance to explore subjects more creatively and more in-depth. It requires students/writers to take risks and be imaginative and unique, while adhering to the rules of grammar and journalism style.  Students are required to use good research and information gathering techniques so they can pitch and develop provocative story ideas – necessary for all features. Students are encouraged to pitch/submit feature ideas and stories to WSSU student media for publication, broadcast, and/or new media consideration. 
Pre-requisite(s): MCM 3340  or Instructor permission.
