Finding Your Voice Online
"Carrie Daklin is mad as hell and doesn't want to take it anymore," begins a column by Ruben Rosario. Want to keep reading? You bet. That's because Rosario always writes with voice, with attitude, with a passion that grabs the reader. Journalism prof Carrie Brown-Smith writes: "Voice doesn’t HAVE TO mean less facts or more ill-informed ranting ... there’s still hard-hitting reporting, but the person behind the story isn’t completely hidden. If anything, the biases they are trying (often to little avail) to hide are instead transparently represented to the audience and become part and parcel of their expertise rather than a liability." If you want to work on livening up your writing, join us for Finding Your Voice, a two-hour workshop at the Daily Planet office on January 11, 7-9 p.m. Register ahead of time, and e-mail instructor Mary Turck ([email protected]) samples of your writing — something boring you'd like to improve or something with voice that you'd like to brag about.
Course tuition is $10; scholarships are available for students to whom this fee is a burden. Register at thedatabank.com:
