What is it like to be a journalist? More importantly, what does it take to be a journalist?

Young people in the county aged between 13-22 now have a real opportunity to find out.

Code named Youth Times, the project - which will be a launched officially on November 7 at Hereford's Left Bank Village - is currently looking to recruit 12 editorial staff.

If you are interested in becoming part of the team that puts together the online publication containing news, features and opinions as well as interviews, real life stories and music reviews then head along to the Youth Times Road Show.

Taking place next Wednesday in Maylord Orchards Meeting Room, Brewers Passage from 7-9pm and again on September 28 from 4-6pm in the Gwynne Warehouse, Left Bank Village, they offer the opportunity to meet the team from The Rural Media Company and find out more about project.

A further road show is being held next Thursday at Hereford Sixth Form College between 5.15-7.15pm, with the aim of attracting students from all three Folly Lane colleges.

Giving young people a voice and designed to encourage young talent to stay in the county, this is a truly original and exciting opportunity. For full details contact Julie Lachaud on 01432 344039.
