Midcareer journalists from Angola, Botswana, DRC, Lesotho, Malawi, Namibia, Mozambique, Swaziland, Zambia and Zimbabwe can apply for this course.

The Open Society Initiative for Southern Africa (OSISA) and the Department of Media Technology at the Polytechnic of Namibia invite applications to their second annual Journalism Summer School (JSS).

The goal of JSS is to prepare journalists for career movement within the newsroom and to provide a platform to reflect on their years of practice/experience.

Senior reporters with a minimum of five years’ journalism experience but not more than ten years are eligible. Knowledge of English is required.

Applicants must send a resume not exceeding two pages in length, two stories published over the past twelve months, and a letter of commitment from the editor or publisher.

The deadline is Sept. 11.
