Question:

The "green light" in the Great Gatsby is often seen as a primary example of symbolism, meant to express Gatsby's longing for Daisy. What other motifs can you think of that began in a literary work, but have now become commonplace to express something in society?

Lindsay P.
Answer:

The "scarlet letter" has become a symbol for an adulterous or otherwise truant woman in society. While it was originally worn on Hester Prynne, it is now described as a symbol and given to any behavior that may be pointed to as less than desirable from a woman.

Question:

You are working in an organization that creates media campaigns for public health. There has recently been an article published about your organization in which the president has been misquoted, and has now been widely spread. Outline how you would reach out to the publication, and what media strategy you would use to dampen the impact of the quote.

Lindsay P.
Answer:

First, I would reach out to the reporter and thank them for writing the article. I would then lead into how the article has gotten quite a bit of attention, but perhaps not for the right reasons, and mention the misquote. I would offer a correction, and ask that it be printed ASAP, but keep the tone light to preserve the relationship. I would then immediately jump on to all social channels, and post the correct quotation. I would note that we are grateful for the attention drawn to our causes, and redirect people to check out our work. It would be important to use the wide reach of this mistake and turn it into something positive for the organization by remaining light, and allowing the publication time to correct the error while capitalizing off of the attention.
