Event description

Description

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 and offers 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!

The fourth of our free community reporters' training courses starts from Wednesday, September 11, for six weeks at Kirkstall Valley Development Trust's new base at Kirkstall Bridge Shopping Park. The course runs 6.30pm-8.30pm each week and ends on Wednesday, October 16.

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 and certificate, as well as gain increased skills and confidence.

All we ask is that you turn up once you've signed up (no timewasters please) - and that you have an ongoing interest in contributing to the West Leeds Dispatch.

Simply sign up here!
