Section Description

Strategic writing is goal-oriented writing, whether you are using it to help an organization achieve its goals, or writing a persuasive cover letter to convince a recruiter to hire you. This course introduces the essential skills needed to write strategically, concisely and vibrantly in any format: Identifying and targeting messages and story ideas, planning and organizing a story, interviewing, writing feature stories and press releases, newsletters, blogs, brochures, advertising copy, and opinion pieces. Every student will be expected to turn in polished, professional work in a timely fashion.

Section Expectation

This asynchronous online course includes daily online readings and assignments. Students can expect to spend 2-3 hours a week on coursework outside of class, which includes a core writing project.


Grades will be based on attendance and participation, daily assignments, and a successful completion of a core writing project (which will serve as the final exam).
