South Leeds Life is running another of its popular courses. The course will run on Wednesday mornings for ten weeks, starting on 9th October at South Leeds Community Radio’s base in Beeston.

On the course you will learn how to:

  • Take better photographs
  • Structure a news story
  • Write a headline
  • Write comment and opinion pieces
  • Interview
  • Use social media
  • Use audio and video

Here’s what one of our students, St Clair Brown said about the course:

“The group have had a great time learning the skills to write articles for the South Leeds Life blog. I can recommend this course to any budding writer out there from South Leeds.”

No experience is needed, but being able to use a computer is helpful. The course is FREE, but you do need to book a place as we are expecting high demand. Email southleedslife@gmail.com or ring Jeremy on 07894 583966.

The course is funded by Community First (City & Hunslet panel) and Leeds City Council Community Learning and run in conjunction with Vera Media.
