6×6: starting next week
The walls of the debate are shifting. People don’t want to be reminded how bad the newspaper/journalism sector is right now; they don’t want to read more introductions to articles reeling off the various nails in the coffin.
In the last couple of months we’ve started to see more articles looking forward. And that’s a positive thing.
Six articles, each with six tips for the journalist of the future. They’re going to be focused on the down to earth practical stuff, and cover six broad areas the next generation freelance journalist will need to be familiar with:
- Business skills
- Making things happen
Some of them are new skills, which are just emerging; others are some of the oldest. And that last one isn’t a journalism skill, but I think it’s vital for freelancers if they’re not to end up sitting at home staring at their computer screen.
It starts on Monday with Branding – and as always, it’s never a complete list so feel free to add your advice in the comments!
