face to face training

Are you a journalist, blogger or writer based in Georgia covering social issues? Do you need help turning your ideas for stories into pitches for editors? Do you know the best way to research different publications and tailor your proposal? You are invited to a free workshop led by online magazine The Calvert Journal in Tbilisi.

Learn how to pitch and write stories focused on social issues for international media titles. Journalists, bloggers, and writers of all ages, backgrounds, and experience levels welcome.

The workshop will be particularly useful for writers who focus on social issues, especially those that affect marginalised groups: LGBT communities, ethnic minorities, and women among others.

Participants will learn how to turn their story ideas into effective pitches, including best practices when contacting editors, essential questions to answer when writing, and common mistakes to avoid. They will practice by developing their ideas and developing pitches under the guidance of editors from The Calvert Journal.

Participants with the best ideas will be commissioned to write their articles, which will be published in The Calvert Journal.

The Digital Storytelling for Writers and Journalists workshops are led by Nadia Beard, Editor in Chief of The Calvert Journal.

The workshops are supported by the British Embassy Tbilisi and Fabrika.

The Calvert Journal is an award-winning online magazine exploring the culture and creativity of the New East: Eastern Europe, the Balkans, Russia, and Central Asia.
