The 2018 West Australian Rookie Reviewers

In 2018 AWESOME ran the popular Rookie Reviewer program again in partnership with Media Education at The West Australian. Bright young things were given the opportunity to further their writing skills with real journalist Grace Millimaci and members of the The West’s awesome Media Education team! In this workshop they learned all about writing for the media, structuring reviews, and what to look for while watching a show.

They received their own press passes on the day to enter an AWESOME Festival show, take their notes and then head back to the workshop to discuss the shows and to learn how to take their observations and turn them into a newspaper worthy review.

The reviews that were submitted by our participants were published online at The West Australian’s Media Education site. There were some AWESOME reviews written by our budding journalists for Ruby’s Wish and Ann-Droid you can read them by following the link HERE!
