Talk by Emma Howard, a campaigning journalist and former English student at the University of Leicester on Monday 5 February

The subject of the talk will be ‘How to get into journalism – and how stories can change the world’. There will be an opportunity to ask questions, and, if you are interested in pursuing a career in journalism, to discuss any of your own story ideas.

Since graduating in 2011, Emma has worked as a trainee at the Guardian and now works for Unearthed, the investigative news platform launched by Greenpeace.

She has won a Legal Reporting Award for her work on the legal aid cuts and a British Journalism Award for the Guardian's climate change campaign Keep it in the Ground. She has had tea with David Attenborough, reported from the Philippines and Dubai, interviewed Charlotte Church going round Tesco and really stuck her foot in it along the way. Seven years ago she was finishing her English degree, editing Leicester University’s student newspaper and getting lost on the paternoster.
