Never miss a deadline, get your 100 words per minute shorthand, be willing to work for free and don’t give up trying to get your work published.

These were the words of advice from Worthing Herald and Chichester Observer editor in chief Colin Channon, who dropped into Brighton Journalist Works this week to talk to our students.

The newsman, whose career spans decades, told students that local papers were all about understanding what makes readers tick and knowing what makes a good, solid story.

He also delighted the class with tales of the champagne golf tournaments, helicopter rides and far flung travel – we just hope our trainees don’t expect all that in their first job!
