NYMAZ Ambassadors - PODs

Music Journalism Mini Course:

Monday 13 January - Monday 3 February 2020.
Join us for this 4 weeks mini course taking place on Monday evenings 6-8pm, at Ripon Library, The Arcade, Ripon, HG4 1AG

Aged 16-25 and interested in music journalism? Join the NYMAZ Ambassadors for this exciting opportunity to experience the Music Journalism profession and develop your skills by working alongside music journalist Dave Simpson.

In January 2020, NYMAZ will be running a free, one-off short course in music journalism techniques, for young people aged 16-25 in North Yorkshire. If you’re interested in music journalism, sharing your thoughts about new music, and would like to learn more about journalism techniques, get involved! This course will be ideal for anybody thinking about studying journalism or music promotion at college and beyond, but all abilities are welcome.

Dave Simpson writes on music and culture for the Guardian, and appears on local and national radio programmes, he has been a professional music journalist for 30 years. In that time, he’s met and interviewed some of the biggest stars in music and most of his favourite bands. Whether being flown abroad to interview someone or watching an upcoming band play a pub to 20 people. Dave’s career started in the music press writing for Uncut and i_D. He has written two books and lectured on Music journalism at Huddersfield University.
This is his dream job and he enjoys helping to inspire similar enthusiasm for music and the craft of writing about it.

You will get the opportunity to put your new skills to the test with these four Monday evening workshops, and at the end take up the opportunity to take part in a live music review as well as a live panel interview!
