COMM 177C: Specialized Writing and Reporting: Environmental Journalism (COMM 277C, EARTHSYS 177C, EARTHSYS 277C)

(Graduate students register for COMM / EARTHSYS 277C.) A practical, writing-intensive course for science and journalism students that begins with the assumption that you already know how to research and relay the essential facts of almost any environmental story. You will go beyond the basics, both as reporters and storytellers. Learn how to write stories that stand on fact but move like fiction, that have protagonists and antagonists, that create suspense, that reveal character through dialogue and action, and that pay off with resonant finales. Limited enrollment: preference to journalism students and students in the natural and environmental sciences. Prerequisite: COMM 104, EARTHSYS 200 or consent of instructor. Admission by application only, available from thayden@stanford.edu. Applications due Nov. 30, 2015.
