SBMEN Announces Its Practical Editing Workshop for Magazines and Digital Platforms This June

The workshop is for those who desire to write or edit for print and digital magazines, or design their own magazines or understand how to launch a successful website. At the end of the workshop, participants will create their own unique magazine concept by learning the entire process of planning, creating, writing, and developing editorial content for print or online platforms.

The training will explore a broad range of subjects from how to design an editorial mission, using digital tools to advance your craft, how to write content for blogs, websites, and interviews, a fool proof guide for generating unique content ideas, and developing editorial tools to meet required standards.

It will be facilitated by a rich coterie of editorial experts, accomplished in their fields through lectures, interactive sessions, class exercises, case studies, and breakout sessions. It is being supported by the British Council Nigeria and Quramo Publishing Limited.

Interested participants are encouraged to apply bloggers, journalists, content developers, vloggers, and those involved in digital platforms.
