Interview, research, review, write, publish
Before interviewing authors, poets and media bosses, the reporters practised their skills by interviewing Rachel Broady who, after 20 years as a journalist working for the News of the World, That’s Life magazine, the Manchester Evening News and many other publications, found being interviewed quite a challenge.
Rachel used to write stories then put it into schoolbooks and her teacher said “you could be a journalist” and it stuck in her head. She has been a journalist now for 20 years. Rachel is very, very nosey.
