This paper explores the New Journalism movement throughout history to the present day. The project uses a content analysis to discover trends among writing techniques of New Journalists. It defines indicators of the literary genres of fiction and nonfiction and addresses which genre’s indicators occur most frequently in work agreed upon universally as New Journalism. The goal is to understand where this subgenre of journalism falls in relation to traditional journalism. Furthermore, it will explore the cultural connotations of journalism as literature rather than objective reporting.
