    Journalism

    Hello...

    I am Amir. I am a student in Britain.

    I would like to hear from established journalists (business, political, social writers) who specialise in South Asia, East Asia or South East Asia. Particularly those who reside in any of those regions.

    It would be helpful to me to hear stories of how they managed to build a career. I myself will start out soon but I am afraid I am a little apprehensive.

    I am also interested in knowing if it is easy to couple freelance work while working with a daily newspaper or magazine, to supplement income.

    Any information at all will be helpful.

    Thank you.

    Let me refer you to Muzna, I know she did a lot of free lance journalist work in Toronto. I will also ask one of my bhabhis, she used to write for some Pakistani Magazine.

    The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he did not exist. And like that... he is gone.

      Got it!

      I've already sent off a request to the editor of the magazine that I write for and hopefully she will help Amir with some insight.

      Meanwhile AmirG you may find relevant info and links at the SAJA (South Asian Journalist's Assoc.) website at this url:

      If you need more specific information send off an email to Sri at [email protected] and tell him that you were referred by Muzna Khan.

      Hopefully we'll get you connected to the right channels!

        AmirG,

        I watched an interview this morning on the news of Binda Rai, Editor of a newspaper to be launched tomorrow called, "The Asian".

        The lady has made some high-handed claims and hopefully she will deliver.

        Are you in London or elsewhere in Britain?
