Literary journalism

  1. 1. Narrative/literary journalism NOT a Research Paper!
  2. 2. Topic • History • General interest • Lifestyle, hobbies • Current affairs, Local interest • Travel
  3. 3. The Challenge • To present the material in a creative and interesting way • To demonstrate the skills you have developed in writing creative non-fiction
  4. 4. Research? • Informal • No need to use MLA citations, but must acknowledge sources • Interview • Personal experience
  5. 5. What’s the Difference? Not CNF • Main purpose is to inform • Style, “literary” quality not important • “Just the facts, ma’am” CNF • Main purpose is to stimulate thought and ideas • Style, “literary” quality is of paramount importance • Not all facts and details need to be included; may be “edited” to enhance overall impact
