Arts reporting & abstraction
“Arts Reporting and the Gradation of Abstraction”
ETC: A Review of General Semantics (04.2008)
I originally wrote this essay for a journalism class on general semantics. My professor recommended that I send it to the editor of ETC, which I did, and the journal published it a few months later. In this article, I was able to utilize an analysis of language and apply it to better understand arts journalism, which has long been one of my passions. The essay also granted me the chance to critique my own writing habits on this particular subject.
