So busy day then.
I ran the second workshop in my media masterclass series today. This time we looked specifically at writing and pitching stories for online.
Here we are [pictured above], hard at work in the Glynne Arms, Hawarden.
I structured the session around four key themes:
- Getting ideas
- Writing for the screen
- Taking it multimedia
- Getting paid
Here’s what people had to say about the experience at the end of the class:
“A great section on how to get ideas and develop them.” – Philip Parry
“In terms of structure, this has helped to demonstrate how to format my future blog posts differently.” – Shaun Best
“Very informative about how to get your message across, engage readers and build community online.” – Anya Hughes
“I liked the stories from personal experience and the point that writing is work and worthy of a fee.” – Bill Webster
“I’m going t use what I learned today to get my first article published.” – Conor O’Gorman.
The next workshop is pencilled in for late April. Please sign up for the newsletter on my home page for the latest news and updates.

Thanks David – It was a really useful day and well worth the time out. I will certainly do my best to make it along to the next one.
I would echo Bill’s feedback. Thanks David for a really well structured workshop that was well worth attending. I have already reworked my website, am working on some ideas for pitches and (hopefully) applied some of what I learned in my latest blog:
Already looking forward to the next workshop!
Thanks for your comments. I’m really pleased people find these workshops useful and go on to apply the ideas in their own writing.
I’m now looking at ideas for the April workshop in Chester and, following feedback on Friday, plan to include and element of one-to-one tuition to work on drafts of articles.
