Press conference and newswriting workshop

The session will begin with some pointers about how to ask the right questions, as well as how to figure out the best angle for a story. You'll then be involved in a mock press conference and encouraged to ask questions and make notes, before being given some time to pull together a rough plan for a story. After that, we'll re-group to share story ideas before wrapping up with a Q&A session with our student ambassadors.
