Back in October 2010, I was involved with the Dancing About Architecture course for would-be music journalists. Organised by the indefatigable Una Mullally, it was a whole lot of fun and featured various folks talking about talking about music.

Like the headline says, it’s time to go back to school. The five week Journalism 101 course is cut from similar cloth with a bunch of working journalists talking about such topics as criticism, new-new journalism, political reporting, feature writing and sports reporting.

Guest lecturers are Kathy Sheridan, Stephen Collins, Lise Hand, Shane Hegarty, Patrick Freyne, Shane Coleman, Nadine O’Regan, Jacqui Hurley, Miguel Delaney, Nialler9, Susan Daly, Markham Nolan and this numptie. It starts next Tuesday night in McGrattan’s (off Baggot Street, Dublin 2), admission is free and you’ll get all the info you need here.

Kudos to Una for putting it all together again. And yes, it really does feel like DIY week here at OTR.
