It seems only fair after my post inviting you to the National College Media Convention session March 11 on writing with voice — and overcoming the “stranglers” — that I report on the solutions we discussed.
As always seems to be the case when the topic is great writing, a bunch of smart, engaged students turned up in New York — and again at Georgia State University on March 16 when I repeated the session at the SPJ “MediAtlanta” conference. (And at GSU, Seminole State College professor Jennifer Sheppard took great notes and graciously shared them so I could better recall questions and unscripted comments.)
So here are the five “stranglers” I listed, along with some suggested solutions.
I’m happy to be among of group of College Media Association members who will sponsor a meeting at the New York convention March 10 to discuss coverage of rape and domestic violence.
