The Independent

independent logoIn July 2013 I completed two week’s work experience at The Independent in their office in Derry.

I worked on both the online and paper products for The Independent and their sister paper i, producing a number of stories including tributes, comment and lifestyle.

Alongside this I also worked as a sub-editor for the i paper’s opinion matrix, choosing stories, writing headlines and editing copy.

Following my experience I continued to contribute to the student and comment sections of the paper.
