Event Description


5th, 12th, 19th November, 10am-12.30pm

Workshop practitioner: Giovanna Iozzi.

Price £45 total for the three sessions, including refreshments.

This course will cover all areas of journalistic features writing: finding a compelling story with a strong human-interest angle, gathering research materials, conducting interviews and then writing clear prose that informs and interests your readers. Features are longer, more thoughtful pieces of journalism, unlike news stories which react to events immediately. Your subject could be a local issue or something that’s gripped the nation or world. Tips on research, interview techniques, writing style, fact corroboration and legal issues will be given. All students will be encouraged to finish the course with a completed feature which they can go on to pitch to editors both in print and online.


5th, 12th, 19th November, 1.30am-4pm

Workshop practitioner: Rebecca Swirsky

Price £45 total for the three sessions, including refreshments.

Together through these three workshops we will consider how writing about our lives helps capture people and places, the ordinary and the extraordinary – experiences which are unique and make us who we are. We will consider how to turn life experience into compelling narrative without becoming too confessional, and the ethics of writing about those we know. Is there ever a separation between fact and fiction? How real is memoir? By considering different narrative points of view using texts from contemporary fiction writers, we will begin several life-writing pieces, using prompts that may then be added to our  writing ‘tool kit’.
