Workshop for budding Journalists

Growing media industry needs more and more competent writers, reporters and editors.

For those who want to write for the media or join the profession as reporters or editors, here is a workshop on how to become a good writer/ journalist/editor. It will be conducted by M. Khalid Rahman, former senior sub editor, Dawn.

“Good writing is difficult; writing good prose more so,” says Khalid Rahman. “It takes special writing skills to make your writing so interesting that a reader loves to read all of it. Writing for a newspaper or magazine is different from what you learn to write at school or college; it becomes all the more challenging when you are competing with several writers for media space.

Duration of the workshop: Three days (Fri-Sun Sept 19-21; 10:00 am to 2:00 pm). Six sessions of two hours each.

Entry Fee: 5,000 PKR (including course material and hands-on training) per participant.

Venue: Institute of Media Skills M-5, Office Floor, Avanti Terrace, Allama Iqbal Road, Block 2, PECHS, Karachi.

Contact: 021-4534719; 0321-9229331. Registrations have already started.
