Croke Park conference centre, Dublin 3


Most journalism students will end up working as a freelance at some stage once they graduate. The NUJ in Ireland offering student members the opportunity to attend a seminar that will explain how to find work as a freelance journalist and, just as importantly, how to ensure you get paid.

Barry McCall, the NUJ president and a freelance journalist based in Dublin, will chair the event. The speakers are Nick  McGowan-Lowe, a prominent freelance photographer from Scotland, and Pamela Morton, NUJ assistant organiser with the freelance department in London.

This is an excellent opportunity for students to learn about freelance journalism from experts in the industry.

There are a limited number of places, which will be allocated on a first come-first served basis. Attendance is free but only open to students who are members of the NUJ or have submitted a membership application form.

The talk is part of the Irish biennial delegate conference, which takes place on Saturday 9 November at the Croke Park conference centre in Dublin 3. The seminar will last for approximately an hour and students who successfully book a place will be required to sign in for the meeting at 1.00pm.

Those wishing to attend the seminar should email before 1.00pm on Monday 4 November to ensure a place at the event. Please state your name, course and college in the email.


This event is for NUJ members only. Please consider joining the NUJ if you would like to attend this event.
