Practical - Portfolio required.
This module builds on the writing and production skills students developed during the Level 4 modules, News, Features, Comment and Digital First. It encourages them to extend and test their skills by working in groups, to a strict deadline, on a complex production task. During this module, students come up with the idea for a magazine, research it, write copy, edit and lay out stories and end the module by creating a digital dummy of their title. Students are encouraged to reflect on current industry approaches to magazine publishing, drawing together their ideas in a short launch plan for their magazine. Students learn how to research and write a range of stories and copy for magazines. More description details are available.
Assessment: Group Magazine (20%) ; Reflective Blog (20%) ; Individual Portfolio of magazine work (60%). *All transcripts are issued in UK credits.
