Community Reporters Course Gets Off To a Flying Start

Our second Community Reporters course started today.

Community Reporters 13-04-17dIt was a day of introductions. Five new students introduced themselves. As tutor, I introduced the idea of “hyperlocal blogging” and we looked at half a dozen sites from around the country and talked about how South Leeds Life has been developed over the last couple of years.

The students then launched into their first assignment: a post about themselves. You can read them of the next day or two as we publish them all. Subjects range from being a better neighbour to running marathons and growing up in Hunslet.

I’m really looking forward to working with these students over the coming weeks. If you would like to join us, it’s not too late and there are still places, so please get in touch: email or ring me, Jeremy on 07894 583966. You can find out more about the course here.
