Welcome to Magazine Makers and Journalism 401 Magazine Service Journalism at the Meek School of Journalism and New Media. I am your host Dr. Samir “Mr. Magazine™” Husni and we are ready to embark on a journey of a lifetime: Making Magazines.
You have heard me say it before, but it is worth saying again. We are no longer just content providers but rather we are now experience makers. So with every magazine you are going to create this semester, you are going to be creating experiences.
This semester is going to be a very special one. The Magazine Innovation Center at the University will be hosting its first ever ACT Experience and you are going to be a big part of that experience. Also we are going to have a very special editor in residence who will be teaching you and working with you this entire semester starting the week after Labor Day. So stay tuned.
Now, as we begin the semester, get set, get ready and GO…… magazine makers, let your journey of a lifetime begin this Monday August 23, 2010. It is your first step of the longest journey of your life and the most fun you will ever have while in school. Trust me. Been there, done that! Enjoy.
