March 10 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
With Gabriel Evans
This workshop will examine how the media uses sensationalism to garner interest and give alternative ways to make newswriting engaging.
What is sensationalism, and why does the media (still) love it?
How does sensationalism affect our lives?
How can we write news articles and other non-fiction without sensationalism?
By the end of the workshop, you’ll not only have a more acute awareness of sensationalism in the media, but also be able to recognise it in your own writing and replace it with more accurate alternatives that are just as engaging (and clickable.)
