Creating Journalists at Emmanuel College

A guide for ENGL 2501 and ENGL 3801

Journalism advice from David Carr

“Being a journalist, I never feel bad talking to journalism students because it’s a grand, grand caper. You get to leave, go talk to strangers, ask them anything, come back, type up their stories, edit the tape. That’s not gonna retire your loans as quickly as it should, and it’s not going to turn you into a person who’s worried about what kind of car they should buy, but that’s kind of as it should be. I mean, it beats working.”
— David Carr, commencement speech at the University of California, Berkeley (see video above for the full speech)

David Carr, media writer for The New York Times died Thursday, setting off a wave of grief in the journalism community.
