  • The art of doubting
  • Strategizing while writing: all best journalist do that.
  • Dramaturgy of an article/ reportage

Writing is the basis of journalism, real journalism without talking heads and empty rhetoric. Most of young people Anna used to work with want to become journalists only for popularity and fame on TV avoiding hard work in newsrooms. But there is an old but true theory that the best journalists are those whose career started with newspaper articles. And not only for month or two, but at least for 3-5 years. This is the right base to start with and the right way to collect credit. This is also the tough school of life that any journalist needs.  

During the course, the audience will have an opportunity to get acquainted with the basic principles of creating texts, they will learn to ask exact questions to the right addressees and first of all to themselves. They will learn about the role of dramaturgy in articles they write and, finally, will try to come up with the answer to the question: “Is journalism still alive, or in recent years, with the advent of social networks it is not needed anymore as a profession?”

The presented course is designed for journalists, as well as for those who would like to improve their writing skills; everyone who is interested in creating content in print/ online issues or social media.

Writing is now a fashion trend. People go crazy about expressing their own opinions on social networks from housewives to students, even juniors.  Writing high quality texts is not a rocket science, but for some reasons few people in our country can boast being recognized as serious content creators… The training is designed to take 16 hours; it includes video materials, case studies, debates, quizzes and teamwork.
