Mishal Husain's book - The skills

This book by the BBC Today programme presenter is well worth a read, particulary for students about to launch themselves in to the world of work. I'm going to include it on my reading list for First Year Reporting and Writing.

Mishal Husain writes about her own career and addresses the obstacles faced by women in journalism while offering her take on the skills you need to succeed.   The book has many tips for journalists - and people in other fields - about how to make your mark, build your authority and navigate newsrooms or other workplaces.

Essential Journalism exam Monday March 4th


If you are taking the next Essential Journalism exam on Monday, you should find a practice paper has been set up in Cirrus for you. This times out on Thursday evening. If you want to look over a completed paper or part of a paper with me on Friday afternoon, let me know or come and see me. 

I will set up another one to run from Friday until after the exam. Tutors will not have access to this paper before the exam, but it will be useful practice. 

If you can't see a paper set for you and want one, let me know. 

Good luck,
