                            FUNDED COURSE

         

Many skilled and experienced print journalists face an uncertain future as newspaper groups encounter challenging times and changing ways of news consumption.

This course aims to give journalists/reporters a guide to an alternative career in broadcasting by learning TV reporting methods. 

The course teaches not basic journalism, but the differing techniques required to forge a career in broadcast news. The principles of news reporting and interviewing remain the same, but the methods and technologies are vastly different. Students will learn the language of broadcasting and the methodologies used in everyday television reporting and interviewing.

JEAN RAFFERTY - FEATURE WRITING AND PITCHING

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 is the course 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.
