Write about London 2012 Games - Mapping the Change Journalism Programme

Are you a Hackney resident interested in the London Olympic and Paralympic Games?
Would you like to develop your own stories and learn new journalism skills?
Do you find the idea of meeting established journalists and seeing your words in print appealing?
If the answer is yes, then Hackney Museum’s Mapping the Change Journalism Programme is for you.
Funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, and delivered by Words of Colour Productions, this FREE seven week programme has eight places for aspiring adult journalists who live, work, study or receive services in the London Borough of Hackney.
Held on Saturdays, you will have the opportunity to develop your ideas into stories, explore how the London Olympic and Paralympic Games impacts on your life and your community, and have your work published in a limited edition newspaper called Hackney Circuit. There is also the potential to gain work experience at the BBC.
