A Syllabus for the Ages

carrAnyone interested in journalism or writing in general might want to put themselves through the paces of the course David Carr taught last semester, his first after joining the faculty at Boston University’s communications school. The course, called Press Play, is devoted to “making and distributing content” in today’s shifting media landscape.  It is what Davide Carr is all about, great journalism, yes, but above all, finding one’s voice as writer.  Latter sessions in the semester deal with distribution models, measuring reader engagement and “writing” for visual learners, i.e. video.

The syllabus for Press Play  can be found on his blog Medium which is sadly now frozen since his last post on February 4.
