Feature Writing short online course

Sian Prior

Event Date: 25 October 2022 to 29 November 2022
Author / Presenters: Dr Sian Prior

Dr Sian Prior has been a journalist for three decades, including six years as a regular columnist for The Age. She is also the author of 'Childless; a story of freedom and longing', shortlisted for The Age 2022 Book of the Year. In this online short course she will introduce you to the basics of feature writing and show you how to pitch and sell your work to relevant publications. You will learn how to find an eye-catching ‘angle’, how to write to the traditional formulas of feature articles, and how to write for a particular ‘house-style’. We cover personal columns, opinion pieces, travel writing, reviews and more. You will also receive individual feedback from Sian for some of your work. All welcome.
