There has never been a better time to get your message across to an interested, intelligent audience. This workshop looks at both the content and business of writing for newspapers, magazines and their digital counterparts.
- Writing for newspapers, magazines and their digital counterparts can be divided into three categories – news, opinion and features. This workshop will briefly touch upon the market for news, and then will closely examine opinion pieces and short and mid-length feature stories.
- Participants will look at distilling and crystallizing their messages and converting their story ideas into short, sharp and dynamic pieces of non-fiction for the popular media. The workshop will suggest some tried and tested journalists’ techniques to allow participants to really bring their stories to life.
- The workshop will also look at all facets of the business, including the marketing and selling of writing to newspapers, magazines and their digital counterparts.
- Participants will develop ‘pitches’ ready for submission to newspaper, magazine and online editors with a view to publication in mainstream media.
- Participants should come prepared with ideas for two or three ‘stories’ that they feel would be of interest to a general print or electronic audience as well as an idea of where they think their stories might be placed.
