What does opinion writing, commentary and analysis mean for science writers, journalists and broadcasters? How are they different from mainstream media pieces? And how does this form of writing distinguish itself from science news and features?

In this two-day masterclass you will learn the basics of the craft of opinion writing and get a chance to pitch to editors working for prestigious science media outlets including New Scientist and The Boston Globe.

Led by ABSW Board member Ehsan Masood, Nature’s editor for editorials, confirmed contributors include:

  • Penny Sarchet, New Scientist
  • Bina Venkataraman, Editorial Page Editor, The Boston Globe
  • John Whitfield, comment editor Research Professional News
