Journalism students urged to apply for new cricket writing scheme

Journalism students with cricket writing aspirations have been urged to sign up to a new scheme which will allow them to showcase their work.

The Cricket Writers’ Club has launched a new student membership scheme to “support the endeavours” of those hoping to report professionally on the sport.

The club aims to help those signing up to the scheme by organising Q&A events from existing cricket writers and providing a special advice guide to the cricket media for students.

It also plans to facilitate networking events and provide online platforms for members to showcase their work within the industry.
