Magazine writing class is takes up blogging, big time

SACRAMENTO, Calif. - What should students in a magazine writing class do most: read, talk, listen to lectures or write?

It's no contest, really, not if you have ever taught a writing class.

Write, damn it.

So, as part of this semester's magazine writing class at California State University, Sacramento, I'm asking my 25 writing students to start - and maintain - a blog with entries about what they are studying, what they are writing and, I hope, their successes at selling articles to magazines.

The first 'blog' appeared just a few minutes ago and if the rest of class can match this, it's going to be a wild semester.
