babelmed - 19/07/2007
Submissions are open for the advanced training course on “Writing for the web”, which is addressed to 12 women journalists coming from Meda countries: Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Israel, Lebanon, Morocco, Palestinian Territories, Syria, Tunisia, Turkey.
The course, which is totally cost-free, has been launched by Euromedcafe.org and is supported by the Fondazione Mediterraneo and the Anna Lindh Euro-Mediterranean Foundation for a Dialogue between Cultures.
The aim of the initiative would be to reinforce women’s role as actors and promoters of intercultural dialogue: the project intends to encourage women’s access to new information and communication technologies (ICTs), and promote the production and circulation of female media professionals’ writings.
The training consists of a seminar in Naples and a 6-month long distance education programme, during which participants will write for the website Euromedcafe.org, being overlooked by experienced journalists. The articles will be paid and published in 4 languages: Arabic, French, English, Italian.
During the seminar in Naples (from 18th to 21st October 2007) training will be given by European Journalism Centre’s journalists. The seminar will be an opportunity to analyze journalistic techniques (interview techniques, sources, editorial techniques, with a keen eye for new technologies) and debate specific topics, such as the foreign correspondent’s role and the EU cultural projects and policy intended for the Mediterranean area.
Applications must be sent no later than 29th August 2007 by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org, or by normal post to: Fondazione Mediterraneo, via Depretis 130, 80133 Naples, Italy (postmark to attest)
