Event Details

Learn the new rules of writing powerful features for and about women in this high-impact class with Zing Tsjeng, journalist, podcaster, Forgotten Women author, and founder of the UK edition of award-winning millennial women's website Broadly.

The media landscape looks vastly different to how it did ten years ago; content is more interactive, more digital and more accountable than ever before. As a journalist, how do you ensure your writing is relevant, engaging and empowering, while also putting your name out there as a force to be reckoned with?

In this high-impact class, Zing Tsjeng will be joining us to show you how to navigate the changing tone, format and interests of women's media, and how you can - and should - create work that matters to audiences now.

A leader in pioneering women's media that is fun, creative, engaging, digitally-focused, progressive and deeply relevant - the kind of content that women want to read, listen to and share - Zing is perfectly placed to take you through exactly what makes an effective feature, what editors look for in a pitch, and how you can make your work more interactive and shareable.

You will cover all bases of progressive women's media with a game-changing creator in the industry, and come away with the knowhow and confidence to expand your own portfolio and get your name out there.

This class is a must for any and all women looking to make their mark in the media.
