Location icon United Kingdom

I am a student at Salford University working towards an NCTJ and MA in Journalism. I am trying to document that progression. I come from a BA background in History and English Literature.
Which means I am starting from scratch.

I'd like to work online or as a reporter at a newspaper. I want to get into the thick of research and learn how to create great content on multimedia platforms.
