Writing for the good of your community is an important civic action, but how will people hear your voice? In this introductory level session we’ll explore some of the popular platforms for citizen journalism and show you the basics of how to get your message out there.
This is the first of three introductory Citizen Journalism workshops that will help to you get you on your way to participating in the CitizenJ program.

Got questions? Here are a few that come up regularly:
I can't book tickets?
There are a couple of reasons why you might not be able to book a place. Firstly, tickets sales may not have opened. If this is the case, under "End" in the registration information it will list "Not started". You can find details of when bookings open on our website.
If the session has booked out under "Quantity" in the registration information it will list "Sold Out". You may be able to put your name on the waitlist.
How do I put my name on the waitlist?
If places are available on the waitlist, the ‘Add my name to waitlist’ option will appear in the bottom right corner of the registration information box. Full details on how we use the waitlist can be found on our website.
What if I can no longer attend a workshop?
Please so show respect for those on the waitlist and let us know as soon as possible if you are unable to make it so we can offer your place to someone else.
Is there a minimum age for participants?
This session is designed for participants aged 15 and up.
Do I need any prior experience to participate?

Do I need to bring anything to this workshop?
