Whether you’re at the beginning of your journalism career, or are looking to refine your skills, this online masterclass will help develop your journalistic abilities. 

Led by Anoosh Chakelian, Britain Editor of the New Statesman, this class will cover the essentials of feature writing – from pitching story ideas to editors to crafting high quality articles for different publications.  

She’ll be covering interviews, features writing, comment and columns, as well as providing advice on the practice of pitching articles to journals and magazines. The event will include a Q&A so there will be opportunities for specific feedback to your questions. 

Masterclass outline: 

  • Class duration of 2 hours and 30 minutes, including a break.  
  • First half compiled of technical advice, including on structuring and pitching articles and managing interviews. 
  • Second half dedicated to Q&A 

We’re proud to be partnering with the New Statesman, the leading progressive political and cultural magazine in the United Kingdom. Founded as a weekly review of politics and literature on 12 April 1913, the New Statesman has notably recognised and published new writers and critics, as well as encouraged notable careers. Today, it is a vibrant print-digital hybrid, and one of the most respected and influential titles in the United Kingdom.
