Capturing the Story with Jon Lee Anderson
Frontline Club trustee Jon Lee Anderson will be running a four-day journalism masterclass, Capturing the Story, at La Porte Peinte this summer. La Porte Peinte is an arts centre based in Noyers sur Serein, Burgundy.
This intensive masterclass in long-form journalism, led by The New Yorker writer, will look at how to perceive a moment and convey its truth in an honest and deliberate way, how to locate the telling detail and how to construct a story structure, how his pieces are built, discerning the details selected and the structural decisions taken to reach the final form.
It will run from 29 July to 1 August 2014. The application deadline is 31 May. Places are limited. For further information, please contact [email protected].
