Communication & Design Program Area


Duration: 39 Hours
Fee: $699.55* (Payment in full is required at time of enrolment.)


Intended for those with a serious interest in writing and selling non-fiction articles to print or online magazines or other communication venues, this is an introduction to the basics of conceiving, focusing, pitching, researching, structuring, writing and revising both short and longer feature articles. The course includes lecture/instruction, classroom exercises, and writing workshops with feedback from peers and the instructor. In addition to the recommended reading and weekly handouts, students are expected to read a wide variety of Canadian and American periodicals, and to complete (for grading) four shorter writing assignments, and one (1,000-word) feature story on a topic of their choice, targeted to an online or print publication. CDJN 117 combined with CDJN 118 is equivalent to JRN 124.
