Event Details

You're a football fanatic or thinking about trying to make the leap from amateur blogger to football journalist. In this intensive one-day masterclass, Guardian football reportes and bloggers will take you through the different aspects of the craft. In four revealing and practical sessions you'll look at: news reporting, the mechanics of the industry and how journalists find football stories; match reporting and writing against deadlines; live blogging; the stark realities of trying to break into football journalism; and, of course, the art of football writing – the cliches, the dangers and what really annoys the readers.


Curated by: Ian Prior, Guardian Sports Editor.

Date: Sunday 18 November 2012

Timings: 10am-5pm

Price: £220 (includes VAT, booking fee and lunch)
