Welcome to Erin’s Spin, a blog dedicated to multimedia coverage of events and stories from UMass Amherst and beyond!

Throughout this semester I will be exploring the ever-changing world of multimedia journalism through this blog under the instruction of long time web editor of The Washington Post,  Steve Fox. Multimedia platforms have forever changed the face of journalism. It is no longer about how well you can write, but also how well you can incorporate photos and tell an additional story using video. This semester will be spent learning how to do just that.

You can look forward to stories, photos, videos, and more coming each week. You will also find interesting links, intriguing RSS feeds, and thoughtful tweets.  I hope you will come back and spend this semester with me!
