Introductory | Narrative journalism is literary storytelling with fact-based research. By using greater detail than traditional reporting, the writer goes inside a story yet retains an important reportorial skepticism. It relies on the use of details, characters, scenes, description, and dialogue, while creating tension through pacing and foreshadowing. Most importantly, it sticks to the truth. Students will read and discuss examples, and develop and begin working on an idea for an article, book, or other form of journalism.
Beginning Fall 2021, we will be adding select in-person classes back to our course catalog. The majority of our classes will still be offered via Zoom.
If a class says IN-PERSON in its title, it will take place in person at our permanent home in Seattle.
If a class says ASYNCHRONOUS in its title, it will take place on Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform.
If a class does not have a marker after its title, it will take place via Zoom.
