Media Academy Iraq (MAI) will conduct a four-day workshop in Koya on the topic of feature writing. Independent and established journalists will attend the workshop, which will touch on key elements of feature writing, including:

 

  • Writing leads
  • Circular endings
  • Background information
  • Assessing strength of sources
  • Use of quotes
  • Link paragraphs and planning

     

    The objective is to raise the standard of feature writing of participating journalists. Many participants will have had very little experience of feature writing, with most of their past journalism output having focused on hard news.
