Our latest community reporters course starts this Thursday (15 September 2022) – but you’ll have to hurry if you want to sign up for the course as there only a few places left!

The six-week course is free, fun and aimed at beginners – and aims to give you the skills to help you tell the story of your community. You get the chance to meet new people, and it looks good on your CV too.

It takes you through photography, interviewing, writing an article and a headline, where to find news, podcasting and more. It’s led by experienced journalist and lecturer John Baron, who is editor and co-founder of West Leeds Dispatch.

It’s running in our new community newsroom at Bramley Lawn Social Centre, off Stanningley Road, on Thursdays, September 15, 22, 29 and October 6, 13 and 20, from 7pm to 9pm.

More information and sign up for the course here.
