Yh3VAPgpOne of the best things about lifestyle journalism is how much this beat is about real life. From what we should be eating, to how to interact with our partners, to which health issue matters the most in the community, lifestyle journalism has the power to change how people live.

If you’d like to learn more about lifestyle writing, join us on Wednesday, August 16, at 3:00 p.m. E.T. for a webinar with writer Arti Patel called “The art of lifestyle writing.

In this workshop, you will learn skills necessary for lifestyle writing: how to interview lifestyle experts, how to find good lifestyle stories, and the importance of hearing from various voices.
