This semester’s cohort of Susanne Althoff’s Writing for the Boston Globe Magazine class contributed articles about hybrid work, the job market, Independent Bookstore Day, a pop-up vintage market, and more.
This is the sixth time Emerson and the Boston Globe have partnered for this course, said Althoff.
“It’s an effective way for students to learn about the story idea generation and pitching process and then immediately put into practice what they’re learning by pitching editors at the Boston Globe,” said Althoff, a former editor of the magazine. “The editors are eager to share their expertise and hope some students will continue pitching the Globe once the course is over.”
The class provides great insight into the Globe, as reporters holding various roles are guest speakers throughout the semester, and students hear what it’s like to work for the Globe.
This semester, former student of the course Maddie Mortell ‘18, an audience engagement coordinator, for the Globe, came and spoke. Another former student, Melissa Rosales ‘20, was just hired by the Globe to be an associate podcast producer, said Althoff.
Students contributed to the College & Careers package in the May 22 issue of The Boston Globe Magazine, the Connections section, and Comfort Zone section.
