Practical info: Free entry, refreshments provided, travel expenses available for those who need them. You need at least an intermediate level of English. No media experience necessary.

At our second Media Lab session this Spring, we will practise editing interview recordings, writing for the media, interviewing for podcasts, and more. Let’s work together to get our stories published and shape the public discourse on migration! We welcome all migrants, regardless of your circumstances, background or profession. Whether you’re a sports- or a businessperson, a carer, a nurse, a cleaner, a teacher, a builder, an asylum seeker not allowed to work, or simply a person who has something to say - come to tell your story and help other migrants share theirs.

The training sessions we offer this time are:

Bring your writing - One-to-one session with a professional journalist who will read and provide feedback on your writing. 5.00 - 6.30 pm (individual time slots of approx. 20 minutes will be allocated). Priority will be given to those who signed up for this session at our previous Media Lab but were placed on a waiting list. To attend this session, you must sign up by Thursday 18 April.

Come with an idea - A session for migrants who have an idea for writing an article but don’t know where to start or need some help structuring it. 5.00 - 6.30 pm, one-to-one or small group session. To attend this session, you must sign up by Thursday 18 April.

Editing audio interviews - Select the most compelling quotes from our audio interviews with migrants and learn to edit audio recordings in Canva. 5.30 - 6.30 pm.

Interviewing for podcasts - Get to know professional standards for interviewers and learn to conduct and record good audio interviews. Come up with engaging questions and bring interesting answers out of your interviewees. You will practise interviewing in pairs or small groups. 6.30 - 9.00 pm
