Who am I?
My name is Karen Connolly. I am a journalist with more than 17 years experience working in the newspaper industry. I write for regional and national press - and everything in between.
My passion is writing and I want to pass this on to children, whether they be the next generation of journalists, authors, writers or scions of industry.
Whatever their choice in life, writing is key and the need to be able to write succinctly is vital.
Children need to see that concise writing is not just a fundamental means of communication in the ‘real’ world but fun and and a lifelong skill for a successful and happy future.
I am a fully qualified journalist and also hold a PgCertEd, having lectured in journalism at The University of Salford for the past eight years.
I am fully CRB checked.
