Catch22 magazine recruiting journalists

Catch 22 are the people behind my motivation as a journalist. Over a year ago, before TooMuchFlavour broke out of it's shell and screamed "Screw it, let's do it!" these guys were here to assist me with a helping hand into journalism.

If it wasn't for them I might have packed writing in, but after 12 week's training with the academy, my attitude changed a lot.

 Catch 22 Magazine recruiting journalists
Interested in the world around you – from your local area to the opposite side of the globe? Love to communicate with people, in any, and every way possible? Recognise how contributing your unique perspective adds up to a well-formed world view?

If you've answered yes to any of the above and are aged between 18-30, then boy have we got some good news for you. Catch 22 isn't just a really hip magazine that's distributed in London every three months. It's also a training academy where aspiring journalists can learn the trade from industry professionals for a tiny fee.

The course is targeted at people who have little or no journalistic experience or training, and are struggling to get their foot in the door of a competitive industry. The Academy offers a basic grounding in print journalism, teaching trainees what to expect of the industry and how to make their mark.

And if that's not enough of an incentive, Catch 22 is funded by media sponsors such as Trinity Mirror, Haymarket and The Economist. As well as providing financial support for the programme, the media partners also offer internships to trainees who have completed the Academy, providing an important first chance to shine.

The deadline for applications to the April Academy cohort is midnight on 18th June. Shortlisted applicants will then be called for interviews at the Academy's headquarters in Seven Sisters, from which 12 students will be chosen.
