Write Online with Marisa Bate

CONTEMPORARY WOMEN'S WRITING FESTIVAL

CONTEMPORARY WOMEN'S WRITING FESTIVAL

Based on skills learned from building and shaping The Pool, the award-winning online platform dedicated to creating inspiring and original content for busy women, this workshop will give advice on writing opinion and comment on current affairs online. Marisa will guide participants through the differences between writing online and print content, finding the right tone and style and engaging with readers, and share her knowledge of the landscape of online journalism and how to formulate an original opinion in a sea of loud and ranty views. Marisa Bate is a journalist, author and speaker with a particular focus on women’s issues. After starting her career at InStyle and Red magazines, she moved to The Guardian before becoming the first employee of the award-winning website for women, The Pool. She has hosted events at literary festivals including Cheltenham and Hay and has appeared on BBC Radio 4’s Late Night Woman’s Hour and The World Tonight. In 2018, she published her first book, The Periodic Table of Feminism.
