What is the key to being a great writer?
Read. Read as often as you can. Read things that are important, things that are not, things you enjoy, things you dislike, things that challenge your current perspectives... read it all. Read it all, read it often, and your writing will benefit.
Define criticism as it applies to literature.
Literary criticism is the study, evaluation, and interpretation of a given literary text. There are numerous forms of literary criticism, often influenced by theoretical approaches to literature.
Under the lens of the humanities fields, what does "communications" mean?
Communications, as a theory, sounds like a less important word than it actually is. Its literal meaning pertains to the exchange of an idea, or ideas, from person to person. However, what that definition neglects, is all the ways that it changes when it signifies an exchange of ideas between cultures, languages, or belief systems. Under that lens, communications belongs to a much broader definition. A definition that perhaps can't even be concluded on currently.
