Description of Activity

Author, journalist and University of Portsmouth Senior Lecturer in Creative Writing Tom Sykes reveals everything you need to know about writing journalism and other forms of nonfiction – and getting paid for it. Drawing on his experiences of travelling the world and writing for New Statesman, Private Eye, The Scotsman, The Telegraph and many other titles, Tom will help you come up with fresh, unique and newsworthy angles for your stories and talk about structure, style, the drafting and editing process, and how to write an eye-catching proposal sure to grab the attention of editors, agents and publishers. Tom will demystify ‘the business’ by examining the state of the current market for nonfiction writing and sharing with attendees real-life book/article proposals, contracts and commission letters.
