Meet Up with the pioneering Margo Kingston in Canberra
Please join us for a Public Interest Journalism Foundation Meet Up with one of the country’s leading proponents of citizen journalism, Margo Kingston, in Canberra on May 8.
She was one of the first journalists to recognise the political shift that happened in Indi at the last federal election, and has been at the forefront of reporting the Leard Forest blockade in NSW (where she was recently arrested for trespass at the Whitehaven Coal mine site).
Co-publisher & editor-in-chief at No Fibs, she sees the future as a collaboration between professional and citizen journalists.
Margo is also well known for her work at The Sydney Morning Herald and her weblog, Webdiary. Since 2012, she has been a citizen journalist, reporting and commenting on Australian politics via Twitter and No Fibs.
• The Meet Up will be held in the Castle Room at King O’Malleys in Civic from 6pm
• Please RSVP by May 5 to Melissa Sweet (melissaATsweetcommunication.com.au) or via The Foundation’s Meet Up site.
