Introduction to News Writing

This taster session will give you an idea of what it's like to study journalism at the University of Sheffield. We will give you some advice on everything you need to think about when writing a news story for a website. Then you'll have a go. We'll hold a mock online press conference; can you write up the story before the website goes live at the end of the session?
