Become a community reporter with West Leeds Dispatch!


It’s great reading other people’s stories, but what about writing your own? Or reporting on a local group you’re a part of, a local issue you feel passionately about, or even just telling the world about one of your achievements?

Well, next Monday (September 28) your West Leeds Dispatch is running a free two-hour session aimed at providing you with some of the basic skills to turn you into a community reporter.

You’ll learn how to write a story like professional journalists do – and you’ll have some fun along the way! We hope by the end of it you’ll feel confident enough to go out into your community and tell stories!

The session, held at Armley Junktion pay as you feel cafe in Armley, starts at 7pm. It’s completely FREE. If you’re interested in coming along, email us or just turn up on the night.

We look forward to seeing you there!

We’re also planning our next community news cafe, where you can meet us – the people behind The Dispatch – and tell us your stories and what you like (or don’t like) about what we’re doing. The next cafe is at Costa Coffee, Bramley, on October 30 at 3pm.
