Journalists give media tips at Diocese of Norwich event
Former Look East and Radio 4 presenter David Clayton will join Editor of Network Norfolk and experienced journalist Keith Morris at an event organised by the Diocese of Norwich to discuss how the local press works and how Christians can effectively use it to promote their stories.
The Marketing and Communications team at the Diocese of Norwich are organising a series of training sessions throughout 2018 to help Norfolk churches use the local media, social media and websites more effectively.
As part of the series Katherine Limbach, the Bishop’s Press Officer will host ‘An Evening with the Local Press’ at Diocesan House in Easton on Monday, March 12, 7pm-9pm.
Katherine Limbach said: “We will have a panel style interview with journalists discussing the local media landscape, how to get stories noticed by the press, techniques and tips, with Q&A.”
The evening will include panellists such as David Clayton (photo left), previously Editor of BBC Radio Norfolk, and Keith Morris (photo right), Editor of Network Norfolk and previously an EDP/Archant journalist.
David Clayton began his professional career on BBC Local Radio on Sunday mornings back in 1981 where he built up an enthusiastic following of "early risers." Later he won a Sony Award for a mid-morning local radio programme and joined Radio 4 to make a series called The Local Network. He returned to local radio to help run BBC Radio Norfolk as the Editor and was a regular presenter on Look East.
Keith Morris has extensive knowledge in journalism and PR. He worked for Archant (who run the EDP newspaper) for nearly 20 years and has been the publisher and editor of the Network Norfolk website for over 12 years. Keith is also the Director of Communications for the Roman Catholic Diocese of East Anglia. He also publishes Good News for Norwich and Norfolk newspaper.
An Evening with the Local Press will be repeated on Wednesday, October 10, 7pm-9pm.
Other events in the training series include ‘Promoting your church news and events’, ‘Press and Media Interview Training’ and ‘Designing and Printing Publicity Materials’.
