We are looking for people who would like to see their stories published in the Knowledge newsletter and on the Knowledge website. No experience is necessary as training is given by an experienced journalist. Participants will have the chance to interview local heroes, write about issues in their community or have their say on our blog. We’re also looking for people who would like to take photographs to accompany the stories.
“Volunteering as a community reporter has helped me further my education … and may have helped secure my place at one of the leading universities in the UK for media and comunications, Goldsmiths University of London.
“(It) has made me feel far more connected to the Knowle West and Filwood area; I now actively seek out new clubs and events in the area to run a story on, which means I get to see first-hand just how much is on offer to the residents.” (Rianna Newman).
“I enjoy finding out what’s going on in the community. It’s interesting to see how the community has changed over the year and the plans for regeneration. I just love writing and it’s a good opportunity to have a go at journalism and have a taste of what it’s like to interview.” (Kasia Guzowska)
“I really enjoy meeting new people, listening to new stories and learning more about English culture and life style through them. Moreover I think this is the best way to improve my English and it’s great being a journalist again! I’m very grateful for this opportunity.” (Rebeca Castineira)
