Journalism, Advanced Journalism - Newspaper, and Creative Writing

Published on 8/10/2016

Welcome to Journalism, Advanced Journalism - Newspaper, and Creative Writing.  I am looking forward to working with you this coming year.

In Journalism, we will learn all about the various aspects of Journalism; from writing articles to designing a spread for a magazine.

In Advanced Journalism- Newspaper we will create The Wrangler magazine and we will run and write for the online paper, www.thewrangleronline.com.  You will build on your writing, design, and photography skills.

In Creative Writing you will explore different types of writing, and create a portfolio of your work.  As well, you will help with the creation of The Twisted Wire Literary and Art Magazine.
