LSU Feature Writing


Curated from MC 3002

Pandemic and closings. Racial tensions and police killings. Sexual harassment investigations on campus and student anger. Fake news and mistrust.

When LSU students in a feature-writing class in the spring of 2021 were asked to report and write a first-person experience tied to the news, there wasn’t a moment of writer’s block.


Emotions and words flowed. The result is a time capsule of their anger and fear, their worries and dreams in this extraordinary moment. Each offering is personal and deeply felt. It shows in their writing.
