Assessment 1

Your first assessment task is to write a feature article (and post it on this website) about any aspect of the contemporary publishing industry, focusing on how digital technology is affecting it.

This needs to be concisely written, engaging, well researched, well argued, and display knowledge of the industry and of new developments in technology.

It should include engaging supporting material (e.g. video, images, gifs, infographics etc.); use links and SEO keywords appropriately. Your article should engage with online industry publications and commentators, and be linked to an individual social media presence (e.g. Twitter).

It is expected that you would take this piece of work through a number of drafts to improve it. (1,500 words with research folder, equivalent to 4000 words).
