MECM10006 Introduction to Media Writing

Recommended? Yes

Available as breadth? No

In essence, you learn that the most important thing to have in any article is a great pun. It has fun and engaging lectures, and only one hour per week so worth going to as they cover a lot of the essentials. Tutes range from the hilarious to the helpful, depending on how engaged people in the class are. Feedback system is great although subject format advantages students who work throughout the semester as opposed to cramming at the end. LMS postings required as well as participation in tutes, so be prepared to bring your game face and not rock up hungover. Easy pass, but a hard subject to knock out of the park. Incredibly valuable if you wish to pursue a career in journalism, plenty of helpful tips and forces you to build up a portfolio.
