From Kelly Quinn, Events Assistant at Guardian News & Media:
The British newspaper, The Guardian is hosting a Diversity Writer’s Workshop in New York City and is currently looking for aspiring journalists from a minority background to apply!
The Diversity Writers Workshop is a series of seminars taking place throughout the year (usually in London but this time we are expanding across the Atlantic!) where aspiring writers can present their work and interact with Guardian journalists.
From past workshops, 73 articles have been published worldwide in the Guardian newspaper by past attendees.
The next workshop takes place on Thursday, February 7 at the Guardian offices in NYC. Twenty shortlisted writers will be invited to join us for an afternoon of tea & coffee with the opportunity to approach commissioning editors and pitch your ideas and create a link between new writers and Guardian journalists.
If you belong to a minority group through your ethnicity, gender, disability, age, sexual orientation, religion or belief, we invite you to apply for a place on the Guardian’s Diversity Writer’s Workshop with editors from the Guardian’s Comment, Business and Features sections.
