This seminar will encourage the integration of digital storytelling tools—audio, video, still images, graphical material—with journalism’s foundational skills of rigorous observation, analysis, and writing. We will explore the forces of vision and voice in non-fiction, the tensions between reporting the story and telling it, and how the best writers bring them into harmony. The class will spend a week reporting from “undiscovered” corners of New York City during spring break, finding stories in artists’ studios, food markets, courthouses, community organizations, innovative businesses, and more.
