Investigative Journalism Investigated

In a time of scandal and division, the Frontline Club examines the role of investigative journalism in today’s media. Is investigative journalism landing its punches and how does long-form journalism work in the face of the increasingly reduced attention span?  What sort of journalism leads to change, and what has little impact?  Join us for a lively discussion with a great panel.

Workshop: Interviewing Techniques for Long-form and Investigative Reports

If your purpose in interviewing goes beyond getting a quick quote, then this workshop is for you. It’s about gathering reliable answers and rich detail from human sources. This one-day workshop will help you improve your questioning and listening skills, to recognise important signals, and to save the interview when it gets difficult. In role play you are going to apply techniques that build two key assets:  “the second story”, another name for buried truths; and narratives that can be used to construct powerful scenes.
