Halftone is Rowan University's very own pop culture publication that allows Rowan's best and brightest to weigh in on all things popular, with an assortment of genre types like video games, movies, television, book, and more!
Through Halftone students are able to pitch ideas for reviews of different types of media as well as different types of deep-dive type articles. The pop culture zine not only allows students to indulge in all things pop, but it even manages to coincide with one of the newest courses offered in the Writing Arts Department called “Writing About Pop Culture”. Throughout the course, students participate in a few rounds of writing workshops about different types of writing about pop culture works, and after the revisions of these pieces are made students are invited to submit them to Halftone for publication.
Halftone gives students the first feel of working for a publication with a full team-based effort with deadlines, editors, and editors-in-chief who help keep things in order and run the zine. Beyond movies and television, Halftone allows students to share stories about popular culture experiences, with writer Katelyn Warren recently sharing a concert review on Machine Gun Kelly’s Sell Out tour, as well as his album. Articles like this help Halftone redefine pop culture reporting with a more scenic and personalized experience.
Halftone continues to establish itself at Rowan University as a pop culture magazine that's mission is to uniquely redefine a genre while giving students a first taste of what's to come in the writing world and industry.
