Barry's Professional Writing Program has allowed me to explore a variety if different writing avenues. I appreciate the diverse set of opportunities, ranging from screenwriting to a journalism practicum that led to editing the student newspaper. The experiences I gained from the program provided me with the skills I needed to land an internship at The Miami Herald. Sam Stanton
