Develop the skills necessary to write arts interviews, reviews, criticism and broader, long-form cultural analysis pieces that would be suitable for newspapers and other publications – print and online. The classes will focus on how to structure an article, select suitable subject matter and keep audiences engaged. Different forms of arts writing will be explored with students receiving detailed feedback on their efforts. The course will also give participants a practical grounding in how to pitch ideas to editors and a list of suitable contacts. Suitable for practiced writers
