Want to see yourself in print?

Do you see yourself as the next Rageh Omaar or John Simpson? Want to know what its like being a journalist - writing about real stories, interviewing real people and getting your work published? 20 young people from across Herefordshire aged between 13 and 25 are going to be given the opportunity to do just that in two two day news story workshops being run by InSITE e-magazine during February half term.

You will work with professional journalists, research your own story ideas, conduct interviews, write copy, and experience life at the busy Youth Times Press Office in Hereford. You will also get the chance to see your articles published in the largest youth e-magazine in the country. With an exciting mix of news, features, opinions, real life stories and reviews InSITE e-magazine (www.insitemag.net )gives young people in Herefordshire the opportunity to have their say about issues that affect them.

If you are interested in taking part, the workshops will be run on Tuesday 14th February to Wednesday 16th February and Thursday 17th February to Friday 18th February from 10am - 5pm. For more information or to book a place please contact Kate Williams on 01432 278 220 or email kate@insitemag.net. Read more ...
