International Affairs Writing
This course is designed to strengthen the writing and communications skills of international affairs students and practitioners through hands-on writing training, workshops, critiques, and development of op-eds, writing samples, long-form pieces, and academic materials. By working with a professional foreign policy journalist, you will deepen your skills of writing and argumentation for different formats including policy papers, research papers, memos, articles, short form, etc. We will work on how to build a strong evidence-based argument and write analytically. We will critique writing and explore multiple drafts, outlines, and finished products. We will strengthen the art of revising your writing so you can feel confident with any writing assignment. From the basic tenets of writing, we delve into specific ways to enrich original writing for different audiences. Students come away comfortable with writing, and knowledgeable about how to find writing resources and to seek support and how to revise their own work.
