Student Edition:How to write your long form Sports story Tickets
4:00pm, Tue 18th October, 2016
Swanston Hall, VIC
If you've ever wondered how long form literary sports writing takes shape, Bryan Curtis has been writing features about the weird and wonderful characters who play and cover American sports for 15 years. A font of knowledge on the great American sportswriters and their craft, Curtis will talk about the qualities that make for classic sports feature writing and the process from which he's produced compelling long reads for the likes of The New York Times, Slate, Grantland and Bill Simmons' new sports and pop culture website The Ringer. Joined by The Guardian's Russell Jackson, this is a masterclass of epic proportions, and for students only.
SPEAKERS: Bryan Curtis and Russell Jackson with Francis Leach
