Whether writing with style or making a deadline, it was a tough week for all

March 22, 2014

This was a tough week for all of us, and you could tell by our tweets. First, Comm 2221. It was midterm week (even though the semester is a month away from the end), and our assignment is in two parts: 50-questions of AP Style and current events, followed by a deadline writing assignment. Sent […]

Doing Our Part to Keep Austin Weird at #SXSWedu

March 5, 2014

Night had fallen on Austin, and I could still hear the revelry off Congress Street, but a 5 a.m. airport shuttle pickup had me sitting in my Embassy suite, bonding with my MacBook Pro, as opposed to joining the festivities. We had come, we had presented and, with any luck, we had contributed to the […]

Length is Relative–at Least When It Comes to Writing Articles

Even in this age of Twitter, it’s  hard to find a journalist who doesn’t like to write long. We all love to share our prose and think ourselves masters of wit and language. We can turn a phrase like a ballerina on pointe. Which is why I was a little surprised today when my students […]
