My name is Nadyat and I’m a freelance radio producer. I’m also studying for a master’s degree in journalism and I’m on a voyage of discovery. It’s both an exciting and challenging time for the craft, for freelancers and for up and coming young journalists. So I’m keen to explore the possibility and engage with ideas about what makes for good journalism. I’m particularly interested in peace journalism because it resonates with me the most. So I’m hoping to draw on its ideas through these pages,and as I learn more about it.
I am interested in why we don’t talk about peacemaking, how we report conflicts, what’s missing from public debate and what that does to how we live our lives or take part in civic society. Journalism to me has always been about empowering communities and giving voice to the voiceless.
In my definition, that includes animals. And while it’s not the easiest subject to report sometimes, I hope to be able to offer a new and unique perspective on the creatures we share this planet with.
Please feel free to contact me with ideas or just to comment. I would love to hear from you.
