Political journalism course

Starting in July 2020 we are going to be running a new project, focusing on socio-political matters in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

Previously we have created lonely planet style magazines, opinion pieces on the cultural scene in Berlin and most recently a journal about the global lockdown.

As things start to normalise in Berlin, and we are based in statistically one of the safest countries in the world, we will be opening applications for projects starting in July. The opportunity will be a mix of meetings in our super sanitised office space and remote work.

This crisis has had a huge impact on the way people view traditional media and government rhetoric, and there are so many questions as to why some nations handled it so well compared to others. An investigation into these topics will be our next endeavour.

Why study with us now?

This has been a time where a lot of people are at a loss at what to do next with their lives. There’s high levels of unemployment and the job market is super competitive. You can get ahead of your peers and spend time working with us on our magazine project, practise your writing, asking some important current questions and getting your work published. You’ll also have a great opportunity to meet and network with like-minded people.

In one month you can improve your prospects for future employment as we research topics, write about them and design a magazine.

For the upcoming project we have added a new mentor, to advise and monitor your progress, and reveal what it’s like to be a political commentator. We are really excited to have Paul Hockenos on board, he brings a wealth of experience and has written for some major publications.

This project suits anyone interested in writing, editing, politics, journalism, graphic design, or those just looking to explore a new career path.

The price for our course is 350 euros per month and includes office space, regular meetings and feedback, access to Indesign software, and culminates in your own published work.
