Become a West Leeds Dispatch community reporter on our FREE course

Would you like to tell the story of your community or a local group? Or perhaps you’d like to celebrate the achievements of others, or highlight an important cause or campaign in West Leeds?

Everyone has a story to tell! If you’d like to get more involved in what’s going on locally, the West Leeds Dispatch community reporters’ training course is just up your street.

The friendly and informal sessions offer a fun introduction to writing articles, taking photos, making videos and basic podcasting – as well as offering wider help and guidance on everything you need to know to be a community reporter. Don’t worry about spelling or grammar, we can help with that too!

The first of our free community reporters’ training courses starts from Thursday, April 18 at Bramley Lawn Social Centre, off Rossefield Approach, Bramley. It runs from 7-9pm for SIX, weekly sessions.

They’re run by West Leeds Dispatch editor John Baron, a journalist with 25 years’ experience, who has worked for a variety of local newspapers as well as The Guardian. At the end of it, you’ll become part of the Dispatch family and earn a community correspondents’ press card, as well as gain increased skills and confidence.

Hurry, as places are limited!

Sign up by following this link to our Eventbrite page.

Or for more information, e-mail John Baron at

Don’t worry if you can’t make this course, we’ll be announcing others soon.
