Have you got an idea for a great feature but are not sure how to get it off the ground? Perhaps you want tips for researching a subject or getting the best out of an interview. After a popular run in 2014, the journalism course is back for a 5 week run.
This course will cover all aspects of feature writing: sourcing compelling stories, following lines of research, getting the best interviews and writing punchy copy that entertains and informs. Your subject could be a local issue or something that’s gripped national or global news platforms. Tips on research, interview techniques, writing style, fact corroboration/legal issues will be given as well as showing you how to go on to pitch your feature.
