The Odessa Review Journalism Training Seminar On Cultural Reporting

The Odessa Review Journalism Training Seminar On Cultural Reporting


This weekend, December 16-18, The Odessa Review presents a seminar and workshops on cultural reporting in Ukraine post-Maidan. This is a wonderful opportunity for young journalists to learn about Western journalism best practices from American journalists, and hear Ukrainian speakers who have extensive experience in writing about contemporary Ukrainian culture.

Participants will be able to try their hand at writing articles in English within a workshop framework with The Odessa Review’s Editor in Chief Vladislav Davidzon. The best articles will be published in the next issue of the magazine.

Organized with the support of MYMEDIA: a four-year program aimed at development of independent media and professional capacity building for journalists. The program is implemented by a joint venture between NIRAS, a leading international consultancy company, and BBC Media Action, working with partners in seven countries – Ukraine, Belarus, Turkey, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Georgia and Moldova. The program is financially supported by Danida.
