Hello mes amis!
Firstly, I would like to thank you all for reading my last post about the presence of the journalist’s voice in an article. It sparked debate in the comments, on Facebook, on Twitter and in person, which was great!
Secondly, I’m pleased to announce that I am opening up Soup du Journalism to guest posts! Of course, the content will primarily be mine, but I think that there are a lot of people with great things to say who don’t necessarily want a blog of their own, so I’d like to provide a platform. My one rule is that guest posts will be solely journalism-related, so your experience of the NCTJ course, how you’re finding working as a journalist, tips for freelancing, shorthand woes… anything, ANYTHING about journalism. Even anything in the style of my last post, i.e. issues in journalism, would be brilliant too. Media Law, writing style, source ideas… if it’s related to journalism, I’ll probably like it.
Here are my rules:
- Your article is about journalism
- It’s original content
- It’s not too formal
- I reserve the right to correct any minor spelling or grammatical errors, but I won’t change the content of your post
- Feel free to include links, pictures, videos… anything you feel you need to improve your post!
I’m looking forward to seeing what people have to offer (bit awkward if no-one fancies it but what the hell, I’m a maverick)
If you have any ideas, let me know and we can chat!
