One of our ETA-nominated lecturers is hosting a Guardian Masterclass, all about turning research into journalism. This course, taught by Geography Lecturer Bradley L Garrett with Anna Minton (author and director of an architecture MRes at University of East London) and Mike Herd, editor of the Guardian Cities website.

Bradley brings to the course his experience in finding lost, forgotten and forbidden parts in cities all over the globe. His book Explore Everything: Place-Hacking the city is all about exploring ruins, tunnels and skyscrapers – all the exciting parts of a city you might never get to see unless you look.

The course promises to teach participants how to see a city with fresh eyes, going beneath the superficial to find the kind of stories people want to read. Promising ‘techniques for observing, contextualising and documenting cities,’ this course is definitely going to be popular among budding writers and city-lovers alike.
