At least two universities have picked up Suzette Martinez Standring’s “The Art of Column Writing” book for use in their opinion/column-writing courses.
That’s according to “The Columnist” newsletter from the National Society of Newspaper Columnists, of which Standring is a former president.
The two universities are DePaul in Chicago and the University of Southern Maine.
Standring — whose book was the subject of Jan. 22, 2008, story on this site — does a humor column for The Milton Times that’s self-syndicated, a faith-related column for The Patriot Ledger of Quincy that’s distributed by GateHouse News Service, and a number of freelance lifestyle columns for The Boston Globe.
