This session with Omar Mouallem exposes the craft of longform narrative journalism in the style of The New Yorker, Harper’s, and Esquire. Journalism does not have to conform to the so-called “inverted pyramid” of facts. This webinar explains how to craft a riveting true story with nothing but the facts and an arsenal of interview questions. You’ll learn to apply traditional story principles to your subjects, such as tension and release and characterization, in order to create gripping stories that go beyond the headlines. All it takes is time and an ear for detail.
