Glastonbury, Goodwood and the Pet Shop Boys

12 08 2010

Former Brighton Journalist Works student Tom Hasson has been in touch to keep us up-to-date with his career


Tom’s in there somewhere – Tweeting

Guardian Music editor Tim Jonze asked on Twitter if anyone would be going to Glastonbury this year and if they’d be willing to tweet for The Guardian Music. Tom told him he was interested (along with a couple of thousand other people).

Tim got in touch a week before the festival to say that, having visited Tom’s Twitter feed and blog, he wanted Tom to be one of the eleven people selected to take part.

Anything Tom  tweeted during the festival was shown on every article published on the Guardian’s website regarding Glastonbury. Apparently Tom attracted all manner of new followers.

The editor of Scoff! magazine (a food supplement in The Spectator) has asked if Tom will do a food blog for the magazine whilst at the Vintage At Goodwood Festival in August.

Tom wrote the Future Events section in the latest issue of Brighton’s What’s On magazine and will continue to do so.

And finally, Tom is writing for Faux magazine. In a couple of week’s time, he’ll be interviewing the Pet Shop Boys for the magazine. Whatever happens, it’s a safe bet that Tom’s career won’t be ‘Being Boring’ (geditt??).

Tom writes:

“I definitely wouldn’t have been able to do all of these things if it hadn’t been for my time at Journalist Works, so thank you! I learned a lot with you and appreciate everything that the experience taught me.”
