Do you dream of a career in journalism yet struggle with writing tight leads and strong nut graphs? The Longhorn Center for Academic Excellence, through Gateway Scholars, is launching a pilot for a Journalism Writing Center designed to bridge that gap. A journalism writing coach will work one-on-one with you at the Belo Center for New Media (3.372) to improve your writing, organize peer critique groups and lead workshops to reinforce critical core skills in journalism. Diana Dawson, coach and center director, is a nationally recognized reporter and writer who has taught the beginning newswriting class in the School of Journalism for 17 years.
Take advantage of this free pilot program today and return as often as you like to polish a skill or correct a problem. You may book appointments up to five days out for the remainder of the semester at: http://lcaejournalism.youcanbook.me/.
We’ll tackle that Rubik’s Cube of journalism – Leads and Nut Graphs — at our first boot camp scheduled for 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 6 in Belo 3.378. If you RSVP at email@example.com
you’ll get free pizza, too!
