Description

This class prepares students to do two things: to be a professional sports journalist working on deadline and to cover a community. Some of the skills are very specific—tweeting results, interviewing athletes immediately after the event, writing on tight deadlines. But other skills, equally important, are more universal — particularly developing sources and understanding the people, issues and history that matter to a community.
