Look at environmental journalism from the success of its pioneers to the difficulties contemporary journalists face today. Learn the essentials of literary non-fiction, how to identify a compelling and original angle, how to approach research and interviews.

Gain insights on how to improve your craft and make your writing honest and engaging.

You will learn

  • about environmental journalism today: who’s doing it and what are the issues?
  • how to develop an original idea and interesting angle for environmental non-fiction
  • how to research, understand the data & interviewing techniques
  • about the write-up: revision and the craft
  • about getting published

This workshop develops employment-related skills.
