In this webinar…:

The Storytelling You webinar concerns how to better execute every facet of longform reporting and writing. Longform features get almost twice the engagement time on news sites as regular pieces. Many newspaper writers and editors want to do great longform pieces and this webinar is a deep dive on how to do it better. It draws on Paul Kix’s own experience as a best-selling author and National Magazine Award-winning journalist, and the insights of the people with whom he’s worked over the years: other NMA winners, Pulitzer Prize winners, and MacArthur Genius Grant recipients. This webinar covers how to identify a story and how to pitch it well; how to report and structure that piece; and then how to do it again in a media environment where writers and editors are asked to be ever-more entrepreneurial.
