I’m running a new online course from March 1st in collaboration with Journalism.co.uk.
We will cover how to tell a story and the importance of human interest to that.
We will also look at the importance of knowing your reader and work on drafting a sample feature for you to pitch — to ultimately sell and make money.
This course will be taught online to keep it flexible for working media specialists and student journalists currently based at home.
If you’re looking to refresh existing skills, or develop some new ones as a freelancer, this how-to course, based on my insider tips from 20 years as a working journalist, could be the new-year resolution you were looking for.
You can find out more about the course by reading my guest blog for the site, in which my key point is:
Journalism is complex but the secret to good storytelling remains simple: engage your reader.
