Diagnostic sessions allow you to experience what learning with us is like. At the same time, they let us see who might soon join the editorial and what unique skills and perspectives they bring.
A practising journalist with years of experience will guide you during a 1.5-hour-long session during which you will discuss the current developments and try to fill the shoes of a section editor, deciding on what articles you’d like to commission. You will also fact-check and edit a piece of writing. This will allow us to assess how best to support you as a prospective editor of Harbingers’ Magazine.
We will call you a few days after the session to tell you what we’ve learned and discuss what we consider to be the best plan for continuation.
Our lessons are open to everyone aged 14-18. To join Harbingers’ Magazine, you don’t need to have any prior knowledge about journalism, editorial processes or the media industry. Except for passion and commitment, only good command of the English language and a computer with unrestricted access to high-speed broadband are necessary.
The group consists of up to three students.
