Print journalism is said to be a dying industry and has been counted out repeatedly over the years. But it remains the main medium in which the world is examined in depth and where people are able to understand the context of events and not just hear the facts.

Feature writing is the art form of print journalism, using story telling and the techniques of fiction to reach people both emotionally and intellectually. So if you’re interested in great writing and interested in people, this one day course is for you. 

Given by a prize winning tutor who has won awards for feature writing, medical journalism, comment and travel writing and also been shortlisted for prestigious fiction awards, it looks at the core skills of writing, research, ideas, and interviewing. You will also learn how to navigate the difficult world of selling your ideas and how to pitch to editors.

Course costs £95 for NUJ members which includes a sandwich lunch and all materials.  To book, contact joanm@nuj.org.uk
