Journalism is complex but the secret to good storytelling is simple: people love to read about people.
This new course, hosted via Journalism.co.uk [see image above], is a hands-on class exploring techniques for writers, such as case studies, sourcing expert views and playing up the human interest to build empathy with your readers.
It will make your stories really come alive.
This four-week course will be taught online. This includes one lesson per week over four consecutive weeks on the same day, plus practical exercises, ongoing feedback and a critique of a draft feature for your chosen publication.
This course is suitable for all professional writers — from career starters beginning their writing career to established journalists looking to refine their skillset in an increasingly competitive freelance market.
What does the course involve?
- Session 1: Telling stories
- Session 2: Finding voices
- Session 3: Handling interviews
- Sessions 4: Writing a draft
