Details

With the advent of digital publishing, we're seeing the meteoric rise of new publishing platforms and ways to get your content out to people.

Big players like Kickstarter and Patreon are starting to change the way that you can make a living from content and journalism, but to many of us these are new and untested ways of making a living in increasingly uncertain times.

Join us for an open spaces debate on the new wave of self-publishing platforms, working out if they can work for you, and sharing stories with people who are using these platforms to pay the bills.

Special guests:

Nafeez Ahmed: Investigative journo/scholar on global security. System shifter @VICE (https://twitter.com/VICE)'s Motherboard. Columnist@MiddleEastEye (https://twitter.com/MiddleEastEye). Creating INSURGE INTEL http://www.patreon.com/nafeez (http://t.co/FW2scQvcSt)

Sirena Bergman: Head of Content & Community, The News Hub (http://the-newshub.com/)

----------------------------------------

This is a free event, but we have a limited capacity (~50) - so please register, and make sure to update your attendance if you can no longer make it so somebody else can take your place.

We've booked the upstairs room in the Bell Pub, near Aldgate East - it's easy to find, and there will be a cash bar.

About Modern Journalism London

----------------------------------------

We set up Modern Journalism London as a group for journalists and publishing professionals as a reaction to the mostly paid-for events run by big organisations.

We believe that there's lots of experience in London that isn't shared, but we couldn't find a forum to talk about it. We want this group to be inclusive and modern - rather than focusing on the journalism of the past, we want to focus on where we're going, and how we need to adapt to produce great content in a rapidly changing industry.

We encourage all kinds of journalists to join - magazine, newspaper or digital - staff or freelance - writing, editing, production or art. We want to foster an inclusive and equal forum to share ideas and skills.
