Creative Writing and Journalism Degree

Study of creative writing and journalism

freelance journalism / writing articles: What is the best way to learn journalism and creative writing? I' m a growing old man in high scholastic education and I hope to be able to concentrate on either journalism, creative writing or a mix of both in colleges. A problem I encounter is that there are few colleges that provide powerful programmes in both areas. Colleges I am now considering are Middlebury, Wesleyan, Oberlin, Bard, Skidmore, Pomona, Northwestern, UMichigan, American, Barnard, Vassar, Smith, Brown, Georgetown, Barnard and UMass Amherst..

..with a multitude of those as reached.

I would like to know whether anyone knows that one of these universities has particularly powerful resources/opportunities for a college or college students interested in both journalism and creative writing.

Writing creatively is also an indispensable journalistic instrument.

This was the home of this group of reporters, also known as "writers" - columns ists, feuilletonists, editors. Even today, every editorship still has any number of reporters with a novel somewhere in them. That is a detour to say that "creative writing" and journalism had a prickly connection.

I am here as a reporter with my associate, JSK Fellow Jacqueline Park, CEO of the Walkley Foundation, an Australia programme to promote journalism in the United States. Whilst the Bachelor's programme offers classes, at least at the higher levels they also attract postgraduate students and various scholarship holders. The retired professor (and Pulitzer Prize laureate and former journalist) Tobias Wolff described it as the best in the United States in an early 2009 press release.

" I can' t really say, except to notice that the calibre of the authors on the personnel - their calibre as authors - is high. I' ve shunned writing poems, as far as this is perhaps a gateway too far for journalism, although I know that there are one or two reporters who have (for good or bad) a secondary occupation in the real poetic world.

That means writing the materials you need and buying the materials you write from other people. They are clever and creative and open to your own unthought design and style. Writing creatively may not be journalism as we know it, but what is it in today's underworld?
