During the course of this day-school, we'll explore how creative writing techniques can be applied to business journalism and financial reporting to bring it to life. We'll look at the human side of business journalism and, through an examination of various case studies, we'll look at how fluctuations in the financial markets often reflect what is going on in the life of collective human emotion. We'll also consider the future of journalism and the impact of the changing media landscape, discussing how social media, click-bait, and citizen journalism are shaping things. Finally, we’ll ask if there certain types of journalism that are more equipped to face the challenges of these times we live in.
