Course of the day – Writing for Arts & Entertainment

The world of arts and entertainment is an exciting place to discover. It is, however, even more exciting to write and discuss.

This fall a new elective course, Writing for Arts and Entertainment, has been designed with that in mind.  Writing for Arts and Entertainment, ENGL 2990 A01, course number 81690 meets Mondays and Wednesdays from 3:00 to 4:20 p.m. in Room H145 of the Locke Humanities Building on the main campus at Blountville.

Students will be offered a unique opportunity to produce the classic rhetorical approach to writing and speaking about arts and entertainment. This broad exposure will include reviews, interviews, media effects, letters to the editor and speeches along with various essays as they relate to specific areas.

Whether you’re interested in bluegrass, gospel, southern rock, country or classical music, motion pictures or documentaries, or promoting your favorite local band, there is something to fit everyone’s taste.  From AC/DC to Zemlinsky, or the Arrival of a Train at La Ciotat to Z, students will be provided with the skills to research any arts and entertainment topic in depth.
