In my view, the most significant time period in the development of literary journalism is the 1960’s through early 1980’s; also known as the period of New Journalism. The innovative journalistic style is a combination of fact and fiction writing. The literary journalists of this time period wrote about real-life situations using vivid descriptions and literary devices such as, characterization, scene setting, and dialogue. They wrote longer and more complex pieces similar to novels, consisting of more than one larger truth. The journalists pursued sources in the same manner as a conventional journalist; however, they would spend months, or even years gathering the facts. The narrative form plus the truth made the writing strong, allowing the
Our lives often depend on literature to assist us with our daily activities. Whether you are deep into a novel about a man embarking on an adventurous trip or simply reading the newspaper on Sunday morning, it is difficult to comprehend what you see in front of you without sufficient knowledge and skill in English. Many individuals misinterpret literature for something simple as carrying the ability to fluently read a fairytale and writing about their day in a diary. Although literature offers one the ability to read, write, and voice opinions, it also allows the reader to develop useful skills throughout the process of analyzing written work, while gaining a better understanding of humanity. This is supported in Michael Meyer’s article “The

Dana Gioia writes the article “Why Literature Matters” for all the readers of the New York Times. He expresses the importance of literature because of the consequences that could result from the lack of reading, especially for young adults between the age 18 and 24. Throughout the article he explains that reading and literacy have decreased even though “income rose to unforeseen levels, college attendance ballooned, and access to information increased enormously.” His diction thoroughly explains that reading has decreased while the resources and opportunities have increased. Gioia appeals logically by using evidence to support claims, appeals ethically by giving reasoning to develop ideas, and appeals emotionally by using diction to add power to the ideas expressed.
In the article by Tom Engelhardt, an author tells about journalism during his childhood and how is it different from now. When his was young, New York had 10 major papers like The Daily News, The Daily Mirror, The Herald Tribune and a few magazines: Life, The Saturday Evening Post, Look and etc. Then he thought, that this is the golden era of journalism. All of these papers run the world, people got news from it and it was hard to imagine life without it. But what do we have now? Thousands of papers and magazines appear in our lives. We have a chose what to read today. But these papers are still just papers. We read someone's ideas and thoughts. The main bursting happened when we god online sources, «With the rise of the Internet, we're no
Reading and writing have played monumental roles in the game called my life. For as long as I can remember, I have been reading or writing, whether it was showcasing my reading skills to my grandparents when I was six, or teaching myself calligraphy when I was thirteen. English literature and all the things it encompasses has always mattered to me, and (almost always) has been a source of my happiness. According to Dana Gioia from “Why Literature Matters, ” more and more young adults are starting to feel the opposite—that reading literature is not interesting and doesn’t matter. “During the past quarter century...the interest young Americans showed in...literature…[has] diminished.” To support this claim that literature matters, Gioia
For the past several months, President Donald Trump has made it clear that he is not a big fan of the media. Journalists have been dealing with constant backlash from the President, who claim that journalists report fake news, or withhold news from Americans. Although present day journalists deal with this everyday, how do future journalists, currently in school, feel about this? What are they going to do when they enter the workforce as journalists in a few short years? Find out in my commentary piece on how journalism students are more motivated than ever to prove Donald Trump wrong. My piece is free, and timely since Trump has been continuously calling the media fake via Twitter and speeches. Feel free to check it out here: http://www.prx.org/pieces/204102-journalism-students-are-more-motivated-than-ever-u
In 1690 is when the first newspaper was printed in the United States. Ever since then, some have used the newspaper to convey the latest events within our country and around the world-around the world. In completing this stimulation I was very successful at the good decision- making. Scoring a 4 out of 5 showed that my interest in the newspaper editor role was one of my strong points as a leader. I feel the editor acts as a guardian of our society; therefore helps in public opinion. The newspaper acts as a mirror to society and informs everything in detail that helps our society forming their opinion. In our Political Science book discusses how newspaper media is the new parent to your younger generation.(pg190). Many have to agree, because the teens are more focused on what they read than what someone is communicating to them through teaching in a classroom setting. Ever since the development of society newspaper has always assisted people. In the general level, the editor informs people about the incidents or promotes products of the companies. It even informs about job opportunities and admission in educational intuitions. If one is unsure about what to study or how to get admitted just read the students corner and find all the answers. It is simple, cheap and quickly available. The best part is, it can be referred back any time and can be documented for future
Ever since I was in elementary school, I have had a strong fascination with literature. Overtime, I had a plethora of books lining my bookcases and barely had room for any more. Reading was a necessity to me and it still is to me today. I eat, sleep, and breath literature because I feel like it’s essential to my academic career. Literature does many wonderful things like, teach me about life lessons, transport me to a new world that I have only dreamed about going to, and discover new vocabulary.
I would like to attend Loyola's Journalist Law School because I have always been passionate human rights and strongly oppose the death penalty. I have also found it fascinating and enjoyed sitting in on court hearings. I guess for me, my passion begun when my best friend was accepted to law school and had me attend her ordination and later invited me to other functions at the school and I was part of her mock trial. In college, I had the opportunity to take a journalism, law class was sad when the class was over. In the past, I have been asked to write articles having to do with law and felt I wasn't qualified enough because I didn't have a degree in Law. I feel that I would benefit attending Loyola's Journalist Law School because it would

I’ve thought of medical careers, a career in psychiatry, forensics, and writing. After plenty of research, experience, and self-evaluation, I think I’ve found a fairly solid fit. A fast moving, creative environment surrounded by interesting people, whilst utilizing my love for literature, a career in publishing is calling my name. Specifically, a career as an editor. Both book editing and script editing sound appealing to me, but for now I’ll focus on book editing. As an editor, I would have a working environment that suits me and appropriate skills for the job, such as interpersonal skills, language skills, writing skills, creativity, and being detail oriented. (bls.gov) Also, values that are important to me would be a focus in this career, such as independence, achievement, and recognition. A career as an editor is a fulfilling career goal because of the ability to improve communication. (Cole 2)
