JMC 110. Professional Writing I: Style

“A writer is a person for whom writing is more difficult than it is for other people,” said Thomas Mann. That’s because a writer appreciates just how important the act of writing is. In JMC 110, you will learn to think like a writer. Why does writing matter? What does that really mean? You will look at the relationship between art and craft, examine the importance of audience, and begin a conscious exploration of your own writing process. You will also see why mechanics play a key role in articulating your ideas clearly.
