Course Leader: Pete May
Cost: £17 per person (maximum 22 participants)
Bring writing materials and any examples of sports writing/journalism that you have particularly enjoyed – or written yourself.

Author, journalist and lecturer Pete May discusses his experience and answers questions on how to get involved in sports writing and blogging. Look at the techniques for producing an effective piece of reportage that conveys all the excitement and drama of being there, and write a short piece on how you fell in love with sport. Whether you are (or want to be!) writing for a team newsletter, sports page or blog, no experience is required, but participants should have a strong interest in the subject, either generally or in a specific sport.
