Our new infographics and magazine classes
We’ve been teaching an infographics class for subscribers once every three months for more than a year now, and we’ve decided to shake things up a bit – including opening our classes up to non-subscribers.
While we’ve had some great classes, the old system hasn’t been working brilliantly. The demand for the free tickets has been so high that the events have all been booked out within a couple of minutes of going online, leaving lots of subscribers frustrated (there were 192 names on the waiting list last time around). We’ve also had a problem with a surprisingly large number of people booking tickets and then not showing up.
We want everyone to be able to enjoy a class with us, so we’re taking the following steps:
-Offering a class every month instead of quarterly.
-Putting the next year of events up on our site so you can pick a time that works for you in advance. We’ll keep adding classes to the list if they get booked out.
-Moving to a bigger classroom (a lovely 19th century lecture theatre) at King’s College London so we can accommodate twice as many guests as before.
-Introducing a new class to the mix – ‘How to launch an independent magazine‘, which will give you all the insider knowledge you need to create your own publication.
To fund the new venue and to reduce drop-out rates, we’re going to start charging £10 for subscriber tickets. We’re also opening classes up to non-subscribers, who’ll be charged £25 for tickets. Any money we make from the classes will be reinvested into bigger and better Slow Journalism in the magazine.
To book a ticket, just visit the Events and Classes section of our website, pick a date that works for you and click the ‘buy tickets’ link in the write-up.
Our next class, our first in the new venue, will be How to make infographics on Thursday 6th October 2016. We look forward to seeing some of you there.
