Wannabe Hacks guest posters
September 13, 2010 1 Comment
Although we Wannabe Hacks may pertain to being the masked and caped crusaders over this dark Journo City we are – of course – not the only inhabitants. Superheroes and Superhacks need help sometimes: a little outside advice or moment of clarity that beats the bad guy; gets the girl; saves the city.
That is why this Justice League is opening its doors to outsiders…
We understand more than anything that we are not the living, breathing authority on journalism and its confusing network of tunnels in, but we also understand that we are a resource that budding Hacks and Hackettes turn to.
Ultimately, there are other people out there like us and have certain stories and experiences to share that none of us Hacks could possibly testify to.
Working abroad? Haven’t done it.
Radio journalism? Know nothing about it.
Equally, there are those experienced writers, editors and broadcasters that have – brace yourself – got a job in journalism and would – brace yourself again – actually love to pass on their shiny pearls of wisdom to us wannabes.
That said we will now be inviting guest bloggers – from a myriad of backgrounds – to write for us from time to time. You have already met Jason Grant and heard what he has to say about life after a BJTC, and very soon we will be introducing others.
We are going to be pitching two types of guest posters:
- 1) One offs: As the name suggests, a brief glimmer and glimpse from the world of amateur / experienced journalism that serves as advice or opinion.
- 2) Regular posters: Those that are undertaking longer-term projects or jobs that we can all benefit from.
This is where you could come in!
If you disagree with us, have an experience regarding something we have written or just think you’ve got the insight and know-how to enlighten us WannabeHacks (and our readers) on something: get in touch.
