Pictured above are some of the local residents who are about to become community correspondents for South Leeds Life!

This afternoon we’ve been holding the first session of our 10-week community correspondents course at Tenants Hall Enterprise Centre.

Course participants got a preview about what the course will offer, including writing, photographic and video skills, as well as sessions on social media like Twitter and Facebook.

They also discovered our new community correspondents website, which helps people to put together their articles through a handy step-by-step guide.

And with a bit of luck some of them will be using it to file their first posts this afternoon!
