PETER RHODES, veteran blogger, columnist and feature writer with the Express & Star, describes the process of turning memorable encounters and events into award-winning prose.

 

Rhodes explains the structure of a newspaper feature. He offers tips on how to start writing when you're facing a blank sheet of paper or an empty computer screen. He demonstrates the art of what Matthew Arnold called "literature in a hurry" with extracts from some of his favourite dispatches in a career which has taken him all over the world.
