Jo's Toolkit - We're Live!

Finally! We are live, we are online! After months of preparation, and a couple of weeks of intense work, especially the last week, we have finally launched Jo s Toolkit – 'The essential journalism toolkit for student and
grassroot media'.


Carly and myself have established and developed this website which will hopefully change and influence the communication between journalists, on an academic, professional, grassroot or student level. Our aim is to create an environment which will teach, train, give advice, create a dialogue and be free to use - no registration, no fees, just good content and no authoritive
voice.

Jo's Toolkit is a journalism resource. We have especially targeted the student and grassroot media as potential users for this site. It allows anyone to submit content, to comment on content, to download documents (such as style guides or workshops), with the aim of aiding, stimulating and developing student and grassroot media.

Our contributors list is growing steadily, and we are motivated and excited to see where this site will take us and student / grassroot media.

We have certified all content under a Creative Commons License, making the content available for re-use, re-work and hopefully opening up the idea of an open-source, sharing community.

You will be able to find examples of writing styles, photography and design. An A-Z Journalism glossary will allow you find terms you need to know. We also offer vast amounts of resourceful links, to aid research, or find interesting sites for specific areas of journalism. Another feature this website boasts are the 10 Tips and Tricks articles, submitted by influential journalists in the country – and even these can be commented on, discussed and debated. And if you have a question directed at any of the contributors, just email (jostoolkit [at] gmail.com) and we will forward it to thespecific contributor.

Check out Jo here, leave some comments, and submit an article, a picture, a design, anything which you think is relevant. You will see from the layout that it is an easy site to navigate, it has the potential to discuss ethical, theoretical as well as practical issues… have fun!

And not to forget, big thanks to Colin who aided the technical and motivational process! Hence all the kick-ass details on the page!
