Kirkstall: Become a Dispatch community reporter on new course

22 August 2019

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?

If you’d like to get more involved in what’s going on locally, the West Leeds Dispatch community reporters’ training course is right up your street.

The friendly and informal course runs over six, weekly sessions.

It’s 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. We can help with spelling and grammar!
