Whether long-form or breaking news, online or print, find your angle and perfect your journalism writing at the home of the UK’s news collections. Our two-day masterclass will help you develop the skills possessed by every successful journalist. We’ll cover the building blocks of effective journalism and help you find original angles for the stories you want to tell. Over the weekend we’ll explore research methods, story structures and how to use language to create impact. You’ll learn how to produce eye-catching headlines, create interesting and engaging copy and develop appropriate writing styles for a variety of platforms including magazines, press and web.
Our course is designed to help you develop editorial judgement and improve your writing techniques by focusing on selection and prioritisation. We’ll also cover accuracy, ethics and fairness, and how to use some of the latest story telling tools now available to journalists.
This course is led by former BBC journalist and Commercial Radio news editor Mhairi Campbell, with contributions from best-selling music biographer Zoë Howe.
