Sorry for the confusion, people! ENG 679 is the correct course number for Writers at Work. The cross-listed course on Writing for Digital Platforms will use ENG 675.
Mondays 6:30-9:15 p.m.
ENG 679 Special Topics: Writers at Work (Area III: Professional Writing) Professor Tenaya Darlington
This course is designed to set your professional life as a writer in motion. Over the course of 15 weeks, you’ll meet a series of working writers from around Philadelphia who will visit our class. During these visits, you’ll have the opportunity to network with professional writers and learn about possible career paths, from public relations to publishing. Each writer’s visit will tie into a different writing assignment so that you can begin building a portfolio of professional work (likely assignments will include: a press release, a review, a book proposal, an edited manuscript, plus a professional resume and bio.) At the end, you’ll develop an online portfolio that you can use as a calling card.
