Event description
THE ART OF THE LONG READ A masterclass with Alice Fishburn and Geoff Dyer

About this Event

How do you tell a great story in 3000 words? This two-part session explores the renaissance of long-form journalism and the challenges of sustaining structure, tone and interest. It aims to strengthen key skills for both writers and editors, and also considers the importance of a long read’s visual and digital presentation.

Part One: Alice Fishburn, editor of the award-winning FT Weekend Magazine, examines what really makes a story work over a longer word count.

Part Two: Geoff Dyer, editor of the FT’s ‘Big Read’ feature, considers long-form journalism in the digital age. When readers are consuming your content on a mobile phone, how do you maintain their interest? How do you write a great first paragraph – but keep momentum going? This session also looks at data visualisation as a storytelling aid.

Alice Fishburn - Alice is the editor of FT Weekend Magazine and the deputy editor of FT Weekend

Geoff Dyer - Geoff edits the Big Read, the FT's daily set-piece feature story. He has also been a foreign correspondent in Brazil, China (Beijing and Shanghai) and Washington DC.
