Be introduced to feature writing and explore the techniques required to craft works of long-form journalism. Topics covered will include the role and importance of interviewing; the distinctions between opinion, research and analysis; ethical considerations, media laws and defamation; differing forms of structure and voice; and methods for finding original, compelling stories drawn from fact. Participants will emerge with an understanding of the landscape of Australian feature writing and the avenues for publication available to them across newspapers, magazines and online outlets.
