2+2 will always equal 4, there are too many wars, feuds, and heroes to remember, and when will you ever need a chemical formula in your everyday travels? Math, history, and even science are essential courses that are needed to graduate, but literature is a craft that can truly be used in many different forms and in various situations. Every subject ever taken involves some sort of writing. But English, and more specifically journalism is the only field where creative, opinion, and even entertainment writing can take place. Journalism is not bound by the rules of “mature academic voice” writers are free to develop there own voice, so that readers may get an idea of who they are.

In journalism the writer is the true star, and being published is equivalent to taking center stage.
