Writing and Journalism: Workshops on Real World Genres

October 30, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Held up as a watchdog of democracy and decried as a purveyor of fake news, the profession of journalism has become the subject of intense debate in the past few years. How can undergraduate students with an interest in journalism get a handle on what the future has in store for this constantly shifting industry? In this workshop, Kamal Al-Solaylee provides an overview of the world of journalism, whether pursued as a civic duty, a full-time career, or a side interest.

Award-winning journalist and writer Kamal Al-Solaylee is the author of the national bestselling memoir Intolerable: A Memoir of Extremes and the recent Brown. He has written for the Globe and Mail, Toronto Star, National Post, The Walrus, Toronto Life, Chatelaine, Quill & Quire and Literary Review of Canada. He currently teaches journalism at Ryerson University in Toronto.
