Content Production, Digital Writing and Production

Feature articles in layout

In Craig’s Sp’ 20 section of ENGL 225: Intro to Writing Studies, students began to hone a new writing and design skill. They drafted and polished feature articles. But their skill-building and knowledge-building did not stop at producing words for the page.

After studying document design, they put those articles into layout. Finally, after an introduction to writing for the web, students produced a web-sensible abstract about their feature articles.

Their articles could be trend pieces about an emerging issue or profile pieces about a professional or technical writer.
