Full details here...


Manchester Meteor, the city's independent media outlet, is beginning a new free course in journalism, beginning in April.

The course, run with the Centre for Investigative Journalism, will feature topics including 'Writing news and feature stories, holding power to account, ethics, photo and video journalism, social media and IT, and viable alternatives to traditional media outlets'.

"This is a chance to set the record straight by producing the news yourself; covering the stories you know are important to your community" states the Meteor "The free course...will teach you the fundamentals of quality journalism, and enable you to tell stories confidently by writing articles and producing multimedia creations."

No experience in journalism is needed... "We are looking for a diverse group of people who live or work in Manchester, care about, and have an active interest in, their communities, want to amplify underrepresented voices in Manchester, want to investigate and hold power to account in Manchester, and have an interest in sharing stories" states the publication.

The course begins with an introductory event on Saturday 14th April, and then evening workshops will run at the Greenfish Resource Centre every Thursday evening from 19th April to 14th June, 6:45pm until 9pm.

The deadline for applications is 17th March and to apply people are being asked to email "An article or video you have produced. This can be in any style and format and should be around 400 words, or 1-3mins long. A section taken from a longer piece is acceptable, and so is a piece produced specifically for this application.

"A short statement saying why you would like to take the course, your contact details, and a brief explanation of your submitted content, explaining when and why it was produced (200 words max)."

DISTRAUGHT SALFORD DAUGHTER CANíT GET TO FAMILY GRAVE AT ST PAULíS CHURCH IN KERSAL

Star date: 14th August 2018

A TALE OF TWO CUSSONS, HIGH BRAMBLES AND IMPERIAL LEATHER

At the front of St Paul's Churchyard in Kersal, the first neat and tidy grave you come across is that of Alexander Cussons and famous family. However the grave of the less famous William Evans, who produced the first ever bar of Imperial Leather soap, is at the very back of the yard and totally inaccessible, literally buried beneath 6ft high weeds and brambles.

William Evans' great granddaughter, Lesley Northall, is distraught as she wants to add her mother's ashes to the site but can't get near it. This isn't just the tale of two Cussons gurus but also of a church struggling for resources.
