What makes for a great feature idea and where do such ideas come from? How do you go from an idea to a successful pitch? What do editors want from a feature pitch: what, when and how should you pitch? What are key elements a good science features hould have? And how do you go from an idea to a published product – how do you make it through the long road of editing? And how do you then make your published story a viral success?

Get answers to these and other questions, and up your game on long-form narrative and creative non-fiction writing.

Come armed with real ideas and pitch them to New Scientist

The event is free for ABSW members but places are limited. Sign up now here.
