News Writing: Real, Not Fake

Presented by: Nackey S. Loeb School of Communications

News writers verify, clarify and tell compelling stories that inform the community, uncover wrongdoing and sometimes even change the world. In this class, students learn the basics of reporting and writing the news with hands-on exercises and by covering real news events. Students examine journalism as a genre and discuss best practices for accuracy, fairness, and newsworthiness. This class is appropriate for those interested in producing journalism, but it also is useful for anyone trying to make sense of a profession that is evolving daily.

Instructor Mark Hayward has been a reporter/columnist at the New Hampshire Union Leader for more than 20 years. As a general assignment reporter, he is called on daily to quickly and accurately research and write news stories about a broad range of topics. Mark was named 2018 Columnist of the Year at the New Hampshire Press Association Distinguished Journalism Awards and was recognized in the Journalist of the Year, Spot News Reporting and First Amendment categories.
