Launch Your Longform Journalism Project [Elisabeth Eaves]
This class will take place via video-conferencing (Zoom), Pacific Time.
Introductory/Intermediate | Great long-form journalism is critical to our understanding of the world. But how do we make important tales riveting? How do we transform the facts into stories with staying power? In this class, we’ll dissect masterful pieces by the likes of Joan Didion and David Grann, and the six steps to writing a great true story. Students will come away with a roadmap to making their idea a reality, from choosing the right angle to coming up with a reporting plan and putting it into action. Students should have some background in journalism or nonfiction writing, and one or more story ideas they want to pitch and discuss.
