Jan 30-Feb 1, 2018. Welcome to our first week (Week 1) of Feature Writing during the Spring semester 2018. When you arrive on Tuesday, you will become a reporter on the Features Desk of Baltimore Watchdog, our department’s online newspaper. This is a professional operation and I am the Features Editor. When you report and write like a pro, your work will be published. On Tuesday, we will review the syllabus and discuss the behavioral guidelines that will govern our classroom. We’ll go over your first assignment sheet so you can get busy reading “It’s What I Do” by combat journalist Lynsey Addario. As you read, think about what inspires Addario as a journalist and why she is successful as an interviewer. What can we learn from her as we develop our journalism skills?
