Writing for the Web

Course Information

Using a practical, hands on approach, Writing for the Web takes students inside the fast moving world of writing on the internet, looking at a range of the work assignments and working environments they can expect to encounter. The lectures and assignments examine specific issues and skills like writing for emphasis and visual impact, the basics of SEO (Search Engine Optimized) writing, sourcing images and video and simple techniques for incorporating them with text. Students will examine the various styles and requirements involved in writing for blogs, online magazines, commercial websites and other text-based models, including social media. The curriculum has a real world focus at all times, and students will both participate in and create their own blogs, putting what they’ve learned to practice. Each type of writing assignment studied will include a look at work opportunities in terms of what is typically available and how to find those opportunities. On successful completion of the course, students will have a good grounding in the basics of writing for the web as it is currently practiced.
