Summer Taster: Introduction to independent journalism with Shreya Sen Handley

How do you pitch an article to top media outfits and have it accepted? How do you pick a topic to write on, or negotiate edits and pay? Most of all, how do you write cracking content? How crisp, stylish, imaginative or well-researched should it be? What voice, angle or format should you use? Join Shreya Sen-Handley for the “Introduction to Independent Journalism” Summer Taster to find out about the methods, myths and best practices of writing for the media. And get to try your hand at it as well.
