Journalism courses for school students proved to be a big hit during the Easter holidays. Pupils from half a dozen schools in Dorset spent a day learning about travel writing, magazine journalism and sports journalism at Up To Speed’s offices at the Daily Echo in Bournemouth.
In an exercise called “Behind The Blue Doors” they described the Echo’s art deco interior and discovered echoes of the past in a secret room deep in the bowels of the building.
School Photography Course
The photography course on the second day was taken by press photographer Hattie Miles, who encouraged the group to look for stories in photographs and images.
Summer Courses in Journalism and Photography
Additional courses in journalism and photography will be running during the summer.
Watch this space for details.
