From social media platforms to local and national newspapers, there are myriad opportunities to voice your opinion about important issues that affect our lives in today’s challenging world. This four-week class is designed to give you the skills and tools to report facts infused with opinions in a powerful way to effect change. We discuss what social activist journalism is, analyzing a diverse array of voices. After taking a look at the basic tenets of journalism, we explore different forms your writing can take—op-ed pieces, letters to the editor, social media and blog posts, and photojournalism. The goal at the end of the session is for you to have a piece ready for submission.
