In addition, students will assess a specific target audience for its informational/entertainment needs and collaborate in the creation of an original electronic publication that meets those needs. Students will also develop a publishable portfolio of two full length feature articles targeted to specific publications along with corresponding pitch letters. This course encourages students to experiment across genres with their writing and to actively engage in the exciting world of freelance publishing.
