Column Writing Assignment - both due March 26
Part I: Please review the chapter in your book about column writing. Also, please go to mysanantonio.com - the website for the San Antonio Express News - and pick two columns by veteran E-N sports columnist and reporter David Flores and tell me the style he chose and what your take on his writing style is. Is Mr. Flores opinionated? Does he have a point or is he just writing a feature (human interest story). This should prepare you for the next phase....
Part II: Write two columns of your choice. Choose your style from the textbook. The column should be at least 750 words. These will be published either online or in The South Texan if the editors deem them to be worthy. Good luck...this is not due until after the TAMUK spring break...be careful and be safe....if you need ideas, call or email or post something on this blog....And, by the way, he is not related to me.
