Journalism student wins bursary to promote mining heritage

A journalism student in Cornwall has won a six-month bursary to help promote the area’s mining heritage.

Jamie Maddison was chosen for the Culture24 Cornwall Museums Heritage and Arts Journalist Bursary Scheme 2012 as he finished his fast-track journalism course at Cornwall College.

The 23-year-old will work one day a week on the scheme to produce articles, films and pictures on any topic in connection to mining heritage.

Said Jamie: “I am thrilled to have been given the opportunity to write about Cornwall’s mining heritage.  There is such a vast array of interesting people, stories and places connected with Cornish mining that I’m certainly not going to run dry on topics to explore.”
