Event Details

Column writing is a hard job to get and an even harder one to do properly. Eight columnists and bloggers – including Guardian and Observer columnists Marina Hyde, Lucy Mangan and Suzanne Moore – address the challenges of the role during this inspiring and illuminating day-long series of talks and Q&As. Attendees will find out how these award-winning writers found their voice, approach writing to give their columns a unique point of view, and how they select subject matter which ensures a constant stream of new ideas. This seminar is ideal for bloggers who want to entertain and provoke your readers, journalists who want to add fire and opinion to their copy, copywriters who wants to grab attention with glittering prose, or marketing and communications professionals looking to engage people inside and outside of your organisation.
