Course Description

After the game, when the cheering stops, a sports writer's work begins. Learn how to make sport come alive in words -- the drama, the pressure, the pivotal moments, the personalities. You will also gain deeper insights into your own athletic pursuits by learning to communicate the essence of competition. From game coverage to profiles to columns to broader issues, students will receive an overview of being a sports writer today.

The instructor, Pulitzer Prize-winner Mike Stanton of The Providence Journal, has covered a wide range of sporting events, from Ivy League athletics to college basketball's Final Four to the World Series and Stanley Cup finals.
