“Reimaging Middle East Coverage” will take students inside the operation of New Lines and introduce them to the editors who founded the magazine and to the international team that produces it today. Workshop participants will explore the process from A to Z — from conceptualizing articles to identifying writers and matching them with key themes; commissioning articles and seeing them through the editorial workflow; through to publishing and promoting articles via our newsletters and social media channels and engaging our readers. We will explore the magazine’s different sections — Reportage, Argument, Anchored in History, First Person, and Review — as well as our podcasts, and our new print edition.
Students will meet and engage with various New Lines editors, including Editor in Chief Hassan Hassan; Managing Editor Ola Salem; Editorial Director Rasha Elass; International Editor Faisal Al Yafai; Middle East Editor Kareem Shaheen; Middle East Deputy Editor Rasha Al Aqeedi; Culture Editor Lydia Wilson; Associate Editor Idrees Ahmad; North Africa Editor Erin Clare Brown; and Politics Editor Danny Postel, who will lead the workshop. The Kevorkian Center’s Director, Mohamad Bazzi, will serve as the faculty liaison. Students will read key writings from New Lines and learn how to develop an idea and craft a pitch for the magazine. They will have the opportunity to bounce ideas off of our editors — and maybe even get published.
