The European Journalism Centre interviewed Hostwriter’s Bernadette Geyer to talk about tips for journalists interested in doing cross-border collaborations…
“Cross-border journalism is a method of many perks. Journalists who include perspectives from other countries in their investigation open up new connections and maximise their story’s reach — often without the need to travel to every location themselves.
While setting up collaborations with colleagues abroad is not a method reserved only for major media outlets, it is not an easy task to do on your own. Aside from being aware of unwritten rules, organisational and intercultural skills are also required.
This is why we talked with Bernadette Geyer from Hostwriter, the non-profit collaborative platform that connects journalists worldwide.”
