About This Site

This is an instructor’s blog to accompany the Newswriting and Reporting I class at the University of Alabama at Birmingham.

Catalog says: Newswriting and Reporting I—Recognizing news, interviewing, reporting, and writing news for print.

Instructor says: Contemporary reporters and newswriters are no longer bound by the limitations of publishing their stories and words for print. However, the building blocks for learning the skill set necessary in learning the craft of journalism are the same regardless of whether the content developed is intended to be published, broadcast of distributed electronically on the internet. Reporting is reporting, no matter the medium that is used for its distribution. This is an introductory course in newswriting and reporting. We will write news stories, review grammar, style, punctuation, and diction, and become familiar with news values, judgment, ethics, legal standards, and basic building blocks of a story.
