The Literature of Fact: Paper and Screen, Ink and Electron

Jim Dwyer

Back to "Spring 2018" courses

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.

If the course fills, you may email mbresnen@princeton.edu to be put on a waitlist. Please include a paragraph explaining your interest in the course.
