Join our workshop on 12 June: Introduction to Constructive Journalism

After travelling to Perugia, Italy to deliver a session on constructive journalism at the renowned International Journalism Festival, we’re pleased to announced that our next stop will be London. Join us on Friday 12 June for a thorough introduction to this growing domain within journalism globally.
It will be a full day course (and tickets include lunch, refreshments and homemade cake!), packed with theoretical background as well as many practical tools and exercises to pitch and produce constructive journalism. The workshop takes place at London’s centrally located Biscuit Factory (near London Bridge and Bermondsey).
Rin Hamburgh, one of our previous participants, said: “After ten years as a journalist, this workshop has reinvigorated my passion to use my writing to making a difference, and has given me the tools to challenge the negative news agenda in a sustainable way. I would recommend it to anyone, from those just starting out to long standing journalists who want fresh inspiration and a positive challenge.”
Fellow course participant Tess Murphy commented after the course: “I hoped to broaden my knowledge on research and how to tell a good story. The course lived up to this expectation, teaching me how to tell stories that matter, in a way that made far more sense to me than how stories are often told in the general media. The practical aspects were particularly good for me, such as how to pitch a constructive story idea, and where to generate inspiration. I left the workshop feeling like I had been given a second wind, and ready to take a more pro-active approach to doing work that I want to do.”
