This mentorship exists in two parts which can be accessed independently or together. The first part is a remote placement during which an individual looking to launch or enhance a career in Environmental Journalism and/or Journalism with a particular focus on Latin America will be personally mentored at distance on stories in local, national and international scale, developing, writing and submitting these for publication whilst overseen by a team of experienced journalists including Talk Radio’s Latin America Correspondent.
