How I got into… entertainment journalism

“Beth Kirkbride of the Indiependent ran an entertaining session on culture journalism, exploring music, film, TV, gaming, books and theatre writing. It’s remarkable how much was covered. From looking at what makes a bad review to writing our own, the session highlighted the intrinsic value and importance of culture in shaping society. Writing about and experiencing culture is so important for understanding society. I particularly, perhaps counterintuitively, enjoyed writing a review to a deadline. No swearing took place, but it was a realistic reflection of filing copy before the presses start printing!”

– Noah Keate, News Associates Summer School Attendee via TeaTalks

MAKING A TAYLOR SWIFT FAN IN 40 MINUTES OR LESS

Taylor Swift has a tremendous fan-base worldwide, but not everyone is entirely convinced by her genius. In this episode, two die-hard Swift fans, Imogen Howse and Clara Dijkstra, take on the challenge of convincing the thus far unconvinced Daniel Fessahaye that now is the time to jump on the singer-songwriter’s fan train. Hosted by Steven Lehmann, “Making a Taylor Swift Fan in 30 Minutes or Less” uses facts and figures, imterviews with music industry professionals, and Imogen and Clara’s personal experiences with Swift’s music to advocate for the artist and explore her musical career. Taylor Swift has come back stronger than a 90’s trend, and it’s time we all embrace it.
