Learn to be a professional games journalist

The Games Tribe is dedicated to improving games journalism across the internet.

As part of that mission we are launching a series of training courses to help people who want to make a living out of games journalism.

The day-long courses will be taught by experienced games journalists who will put you into real situations and show you the tricks of the trade.

The first course will include a keynote speech and detailed advice from Keith Stuart, games correspondent for The Guardian, a former editor and long-time freelance games writer.

The courses are sponsored by EA and this first day course will be held at their offices in Guildford and feature a tour of the studio and the chance to interview a developer and play pre-release versions of EA games.
