“Writing Features for Magazines & Newspapers:” A Workshop w/ Amanda Bulman!

Please note: Registration for this workshop closed at 6 p.m. on March 27.

Feature writing is a unique beast—a place where writers have a chance to blend storytelling and reporting.

In this workshop, we’ll explore and examine different types of features.

We’ll learn about constructing a pitch, conducting an effective interview, organizing the structure of the story, writing a dynamic opening line, and closing the piece effectively.

This session will take two hours and will require a bit of advanced preparation.

Reading List Selections:

• Love in the Time of Robots by Ellen Gamerman

• America’s Midlife Crisis: lessons from a survivalist summit by Stephen Marche

• Violinist has the World on 2 Strings by Steve Lopez
