Moving the Masses

In taking this course on “Writing for the Public”, my goal is to learn how to communicate effectively with a large audience, through researching and writing about public issues. I also hope to use various technological mediums as platforms, since the Internet serves as the customary source of information for the general public today. Being an 18 year old with an iPhone, my greatest contributions to the online community are relatively mundane tweets and Facebook statuses. However, I hope that in this course I will be able to learn how to compose more polished, professional pieces and in turn become a more skilled writer. I hope to challenge myself in improving my writing style to become more articulate, persuasive, and relevant to public interest. Although my major is undecided at this point, I believe that being a skilled writer is a crucial skill in any profession.  -Anna
