He’ll cover those stickier questions, like the difference between writing what you know and conflict of interests and our developing understanding of objective reporting. Bert will also tackle issues as they relate to lifestyle writers, social media journalists and influencer types, including getting stuff for free, writing about products, and journalism versus marketing.
