Print journalist and blogger John Ettorre hosts a writing workshop on Saturday, September 26, 9:30-11:30 a.m., at the Cleveland Heights-University Heights Library, 2345 Lee Rd.
The workshop, hosted by the Heights Observer and FutureHeights, is the third in a series designed to help people who want to foster discussion of community issues by writing for the Heights Observer or any other citizen journalism project. The previous sessions focused on newswriting skills. It’s not necessary to have attended either of the previous sessions.
This workshop will focus on writing feature stories; topics include selecting a subject, background research, interviewing and how to begin writing. Attendees will be exposed to samples of excellent feature-writing, and provided ideas and other resources for honing their craft.
Reservations are recommended. Details here.
