  • Which Universities do you intend to target? Do you have any contacts in their journalism departments?
  • Apart from offering somewhere to publish and an established style guide - what else do we offer student journalists?

I currently have no contacts but i thought id give it a try anyway and i think next month is our turn with the CPG for outreach so id like to get this started for then. IMO we offer students 24hr help and support (which is great for students) and an established outlet for their articles giving them REAL experience in the news/publishing sector. Also some (one at least maybe another) have had students editing course related articles on WP so why cant we do it here which is very related to the Journalism courses. We also allow transparency for the lecturers to check the articles that the students are writing.

It may be a weak thing atm but i hope to build it up and give it a try, and why the not, the worst we'll get back is "no" (hopefully ;-)??--MarkTalk to me 09:27, 20 September 2007 (UTC)Reply

Actually, the worst is you'll get ignored. I would recommend attaching a copy of the latest print edition to any emails sent - and I think we want to get Cary to send some of them out. --Brian McNeil / talk 09:34, 20 September 2007 (UTC)Reply
