Launch Your Longform Journalism Project

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.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online until further notice. If there's a possibility that your class might take place in person, you will be notified in advance. Even if classes can be held in person, there will always be a hybrid option to participate via Zoom.

Classes with "Zoom" in the title will be held via Zoom even after our doors open. Classes listed as "Online" will be held on Wet Ink, our platform for asynchronous learning.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
