About Journalism Training
For much of the last four years, I have been conducting citizen journalism workshops around Kenya. The places I have done this include Turkana, Eldoret, Mombasa, Nakuru and Nairobi. These trainings equip young journalists with news gathering and writing skills and enable them to start their own blogs. Some of these journalists have become correspondents for the mainstream media from their locations in the counties.
Some past experience
I launched the East Africa School of Journalism in 2003. The students gracing the cover of the 2004-2005 Academic Handbook were the first class. Here also is the school magazine, The Pen, published to coincide with the first graduation. I also wrote a small book, How to Become a Journalist: A Guide for High School Students. It has long gone out of print. I sold the school in 2009 to return to journalism practice proper. But I still conduct training workshops in between writing a regular newspaper column and special reports, shooting documentary films and now writing books. I have conducted citizen journalism training workshops across the country and given talks to kindred spirits such as the Sports Journalists Association of Kenya.
