Overview

THIS EVENT IS NOW SOLD OUT

Ever dreamed of writing for the FT Opinion section? We want to hear from you. We particularly relish pieces that highlight unexpected places, explore new ideas and illuminate diverse points of view. It's one of the best ways to influence public debate and get policy ideas in front of people who matter.

Come and meet Brooke Masters, who runs the section, and her team. They will explain how the op-ed process works, how to grab their attention and how write compelling pieces that stand out from the crowd.

In this practical session, you will learn:

  • What works and what doesn't based on real life examples
  • How to frame an argument and what kind of language to use

It will be followed by a Q&A with drinks and nibbles provided.

Comment and Analysis Editor
Financial Times

Brooke Masters was appointed Comment and Analysis Editor for the Financial Times in 2018. Previously she was an Assistant Editor, Companies Editor and Chief Regulation Correspondent. In the latter role she covered the UK Financial Services Authority and worked with reporters around the world to cover global financial regulation and white- collar crime cases. Prior to this, she was the City Correspondent covering banking, stockbroking and asset management with a secondary focus on London’s international competitiveness. Before that she wrote for the Lex column and served as a senior business reporter in the FT's New York office covering the intersection of law and business.

From 2002 to 2006, Ms Masters reported on Wall Street and white-collar crime for the Washington Post and followed New York Attorney General Eliot Spitzer's various investigations. This led to her 2006 book, Spoiling for a Fight: The Rise of Eliot Spitzer, which was published in both hardback and paperback editions by Henry Holt. Ms Masters spent an additional 13 years at the Washington Post in Washington and Virginia, covering criminal justice, education, and politics. She has also written extensively about espionage, capital punishment and terrorism. Ms Masters graduated summa cum laude from Harvard University with a degree in History. She also earned a Master's of Science in Economic History with distinction from the London School of Economics.
