The Fundamentals of Journalism

The Fundamentals of Journalism

Wed 13 February 2019 16:00-17:00 - Richard Hoggart Building, Room 140

Charlie will be running a workshop on becoming a journalist in the current media landscape, and how to do it without losing (all) of your ethics. Learn how to use your voice to develop on existing news stories, finding your niche, and discovering your place in the big, bad, busy world of article writing.
