2018 Course Offerings below
Report NY
Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday | Time: 10:00 am-12:00 pm | Four college credits. OR
Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday | Time: 12:00 pm-2:00 pm | Four college credits.
This course is for pre-college students who want exposure to the craft at a beginner's level. It's a class in gathering and writing the news, including news evaluation, reporting and writing techniques, and specialized beats, with New York City, especially Downtown New York and its nearby Brooklyn neighbors, as the lab. It's designed to provide extensive practice. It covers how reporters are assigned stories, how stories are planned and written, and journalism ethics and responsibilities. Students report and write stories under newsroom conditions. For students with and without prior journalism studies or experience. With multimedia support
The Personal Essay
Tuesday, Thursday | Time: 4:00 pm-7:00 pm | Four college credits 
Do you have something to say? A story to tell? An application essay to write? An original voice? This course will nurture that voice, help shape the stories, sharpen your skills. The personal essay is a popular form of nonfiction writing, cherished by both writers and readers, but crafting a successful essay is a difficult skill. How can we be self-revealing without being self-indulgent? How can we make our own experiences powerful for others? In this course, students will read some of the best essays around, from Langston Hughes and Joan Didion to Oliver Sacks to Marjorie Williams and other writers and write their own, taking each one through several drafts. The heart of the course will be close reading and editing of student work. For students' with and without prior journalism studies or experience.
Culture Vulture
Tuesday, Thursday| Time: 1:00 pm-4:00 pm | Four college credits
BY PERMISSION ONLY. Have you ever gone to a four-star/two-thumbs up film and fallen asleep? Were you shocked when “Once” won the Tony for Best Musical? Do you secretly think that “Breaking Bad” is a lot more poignant than Hamlet? Do you wonder why novels about love and family by men are Great Novels and novels about love and family by women are chick lit? Could your grandma paint some of that stuff in the Museum of Modern Art? Culture Vulture is a course in reading, writing and thinking about the art of criticism. Students will be introduced to some of the best and most important cultural critics and to some of the key critical debates of the last decades. What makes something “high” or “low” culture? Is “taste” just a matter of opinion? How much does the race of an author matter? Why can we scream at a concert but talk in whispers at a museum? Now that the Internet has made everyone a critic, do the “official” critics matter? We’ll take advantage of our location in New York city and inhale culture -- art, film, theater, books, TV -- and then learn to write about it, both as arts reporters and as cultural critics.
Writing the Body
Monday, Wednesday | Time: 1:00 pm-4:00 pm | Four college credits
To what extent are we our bodies? Do we inhabit them, flee them, celebrate them, transcend them? How do others “read” our bodies? Are we accepted by our culture … admired … despised? Writing the Body is a course for everyone with a body – a male body, a female body, a body of uncertain gender. We will read a wide variety of individual body-centered accounts (What is it like to be a quadriplegic and only be able to move your mouth? What is it like to be very fat?) and cultural analyses (If egg and sperm both move to meet in the Fallopian tube, who decided to call the sperm active and the egg passive? Is plastic surgery barbaric or empowering?) Topics discussed will include – but not be limited to – beauty, weight, sex, rape, menstruation, abortion, penis size, transgender identity, body modification (tattoos, piercing and beyond), disability, and race. In addition to extensive reading and discussion, students will write several versions of their own stories of embodiment.
Style NY: Covering the Fashion Industry
Monday, Wednesday | Time: 5:30 pm-8:30 pm | Four college credits
Fashion and style have always been integral to the magazine and newspaper industries. But Despite each publication having its own unique take on the fashion industry, they are all alike in that they express an opinionated view on clothing, designer talent, models, and fashion as it relates to society and culture. Now magazines and periodicals have had to compete with bloggers and other influencers who have proven to be early masters of the fashion journalism game and who attract the attention of millions of followers.
 Whether online or in print, great fashion writing expresses an opinion and makes connections to the past, present, and the future. This class will explore reviewing fashion shows, writing trend pieces, long-form stories, and profiles. It will also delve heavily into the fast-paced world of blogs and social media from Twitter and Instagram to Snapchat and Vine—touching on the differences and similarities of each medium. Finally, we will also practice techniques for real-world situations such as interview skills and navigating the world of PR agencies. There will be guest speakers from different facets of the fashion industry.
EAT NYC: Food Reporting and Writing
Tuesday, Thursday | Time: 3:00 pm-6:00 pm | Four college credits
“Tell me what you eat, and I will tell you what you are.” – Brillat-Savarin, French epicurean.
This quote captures the spirit of what you will explore immersed for six weeks in the deliciously creative and highly competitive world of food writing. Using New York City as our classroom, we’ll find fresh ways to discover, pitch and tell the stories of those who grow, make, and serve the foods we savor. We’ll bring them to life in a variety of formats—personal narrative, trend pieces, restaurant reviews—with the goal of pitching your best work to your favorite food publication or website.
Those with a hunger for challenge and adventure will be rewarded. You’ll meet guest speakers from the world of food and food journalism, get comfortable interviewing strangers, analyze the state of food journalism, taste and critique new foods, review a NYC restaurant or neighborhood, and develop, pitch, research, report and write (and rewrite!) stories of varying length, all optimized for digital and social promotion. Because food is a uniquely visual beat with a strong service component, you’ll also get a crash course in recipe writing, video, and food photography.
