The Centre for Independent Journalism (http://www.cijmalaysia.org/) (CIJ) is organising a series of training workshops for pundit wannabes and other more serious writers on the basics of journalism. At RM 10.00 per session, it is almost a steal!

The schedule for the month of December is as follows :

Module 1 : Theories & Principles
- 2 Dec 2004, 1900 - 2100 (Registration Dateline : closed)

Learn the basic concepts and issues in journalism such as objectivity, neutrality and that all-important component of any credible journalism - ethics.

Module 2 : News Values & Agenda Setting
- 9 Dec 2004, 1900 - 2100 (Registration Dateline : 7 Dec)

Why is it that different stories make it to the front page of different newspapers? Why are some stories played up but others, shushed?

Module 3 : Writing The News
- 16 Dec 2004, 1900 - 2100 (Registration Dateline : 14 Dec)

Heard of the 5Ws and H formula for news writing? Or the inverted pyramid model? It's the ABCs of news writing!

To register or to get more details, contact CIJ at 03.4023.0772. or visit their website at www.cijmalaysia.org (http://www.cijmalaysia.org).
