Big Ideas, Little Posts with Drake Baer

Drake Baer, the ideas editor at Tech Insider, leads students in a two-part, hands-on workshop that’s all about writing for the digital age.

As the news has become more granular, reporting has been divorced from the idiom of the article. As a result, the hed has become the new lede and the angle has become the new voice. But that does not mean writing needs to be “dumbed down” — rather, we just need to work in a new style.

This workshop is for students interested in learning how to cover meaningful, complex topics in a clickable, consumable, and shareable fashion.
