Capstone Project

For my Capstone Project, my goal is to find a way to showcase my developed writing voice in a way that combines my passions and my high critical writing standards as discussed in my evolution essay. I want to create a project where my highest personal standards (meaning I will choose what I write about, and I will really care about it) are matched by the high critical standards I have acquired over time.  I have chosen to make food a major theme for this project (shocker, huh?), but this time I am not stopping there.  Five years ago, I probably would have just written a one-dimensional piece about my love for food.  But my standards are much higher now.  I need to create something that includes my love for food while also challenging me and pushing me out of my writing comfort zone.  This is why I have decided to write about food in both a personal context and a professional context.  I will challenge myself to apply a variety of different formats, both casual and formal, to the subject matter in order to practicing adapting my writing voice to different settings.

In order to do this, I have decided to create a website for a new television show.  I have written the website from the perspective of a producer at a television production company called Rock Shrimp Productions.  I interned at this production company last summer, and I was exposed to the process of developing, pitching, and actually creating new television shows.  Conveniently enough, Rock Shrimp Productions creates primarily food-related shows for The Food Network.  So I decided to use what I have learned through my experience at Rock Shrimp, at local Ann Arbor restaurants, and through my writing courses to create the structure for my own television show.  I have created the website as if the television show already exists, so I would like you to imagine that you are visiting the website of this show that is already on television.  I have done my best to incorporate a variety of different types of writing, both personal and professional, as well as different types of media in order to highlight the breadth of skills I have developed. My goal is to create a project that will push me past my highest personal and critical standards, and hopefully be interesting enough for you not to fall asleep while reading it. Enjoy!
