Professional writing for online platforms. In addition to analyzing published examples, students create blogs, social media posts, infographics, newsletters, and other digital writing. The course also examines legal, ethical, and copyright issues for writers; advanced strategies for online searching; the development of a persona and cultivation of an audience; best practices for creating accessible and attractive work; and tools for writing, editing, and collaborating. This is a required course for the Professional Writing minor. It counts toward the English major, but does not count toward the English minor or the Creative Writing minor.
