Good with Words: A Series of Writing & Editing Courses from the University of Michigan

We’ve all used words just about as long as we’ve been alive. This obvious truth, alas, has led too many of us into the delusion that we’re good with words: that we’re good speakers and, even more commonly and less justifiably, that we’re good writers. Yet anyone who’s seen or heard much of how words are used in the realms of business and academia — to say nothing of personal correspondence — does understand, on some level, the true rarity of these skills. Now, those of us who recognize t...

How brands should address social issues that matter to Black Americans

Developing strategies to navigate cultural and social issues is an increasingly important tool in a marketer’s playbook, especially as brands seek connections with Black audiences. This summer, the International Olympic Committee’s ban on self-expression, including clothing bearing the Black Lives Matter phrase, created an impactful and ultimately damaging backlash with Black audiences. Black Americans determined they had been slighted and, as result, Black viewership of the Olympics was minimal...

This is a positive story about Facebook. No, really

Facebook is using one of its most engaging places on the site to spread positive stories about the company: the News Feed. That’s right.

According to a report from the New York Times, after a meeting in January, Facebook took multiple steps to make the company look good. These included distancing Mark Zuckerberg from controversies, incre...

Pomona edges into Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ novel

Quentin Tarantino’s movies tend to go on longer than is strictly necessary. The same holds true for his bestselling novelization of his own screenplay for “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” which runs 400 pages. But the extra space does allow for digressions that weren’t part of his digression-filled 2-hour, 41-minute movie (which I liked, let me hasten to say). And in one scenic byway, brought to my attention by reader Allen Callaci, a Texas cowboy picks up a young hitchhiker and starts a convers...
