1-1:45: 6/24 “How to vary voice in long-form journalism to maintian vigor and va-voom” with Kerry Benson
Class Time:June 24 (Th) 1-1:45
Maybe you’re writing or curating creative non-fiction or narrative journalism. Maybe you just want to understand how to keep long-form writing from losing readers, or how to use a different voice to build variety in your work. If you’re great with the short-and-sweet of social, but struggle to write or edit stories and articles longer than 500 words, this session is your friend. Learn some basics on finding (and varying) voice to enhance and drive narrative journalism.
Kerry Benson has taught 3/4 of the courses in the School of Journalism and Mass Communications at the University of Kansas, as she came to KU with professional experience in both news and strategic communication. Media Writing, the first writing course in the School, and Stand and Deliver, the school’s presentation skills class, are Benson’s favorites to teach. They rate right up with her most-cherished food group: cookies.

These sessions will present students with new ideas that they are unlikely to have encountered in the high school classroom. These are not software sessions. Instead, the sessions will present new ways of being a journalist or communicator in 2021 and provide lots of take-away examples that can motivate students when they return to school in the fall. Inspiration sessions last 45 minutes each via Zoom.
