Good to see my colleague Sue Ryan and former Daily Mail trainee Fay Schlesinger are on a panel discussing the opportunities and obstacles facing young journalists. Both are well placed to offer really valuable advice. Sue, formerly managing editor at the Telegraph, now organises the Mail's journalism training schemes. Fay is a graduate of the reporting scheme who went through the ranks quickly at the Mail and is now home news-editor of The Times. Both will have cracking stories to tell. They are joined on the panel by Krissi Murison, Sunday Times Magazine associate editor and first female editor of the NME; Katie Hind, Sunday People showbiz editor who began her journalism career editing her university paper; Alice Vincent, founding member of Wannabe Hacks and arts and entertainment writer for the Telegraph and Jennifer Richardson, award-winning journalist who quickly rose through the ranks at Chemist + Druggist magazine to become the editor. The panel is chaired by long-serving newsreader Kay Burley. The seminar, So you want to be a journalist?, is organised by Women in Journalism and Wannabe Hacks and will be held at the Mirror's offices in Canary Wharf on the evening of February 20. It will be followed by a drinks reception. You can book here and follow @WIJ_UK and @wannabehacks for updates using hashtag #WannabeWIJ.
