In this course, we will explore a variety of online magazine genres (reviews, feature writing, profiles, and commentary) through such publications as The New Yorker, Wired, Esquire Atlantic Monthly and others. In addition to reading and writing within these magazine genres, students will explore the cultural work that publication does—who writes and publishes? What kind of writing gets published? What purposes do magazines serve? What is the relationship between print and digital publication? In addition, students will thoughtfully plan and design their writing within industry standard publishing software (Adobe InDesign and HTML code). The work you do in this class will culminate in a digital class magazine that you will collectively plan and produce.
