Careers Event: Working as an arts journalist and theatre critic

Location: TS1 (Alexander Building, Thornlea, New North Rd.)

What are the opportunities for an arts journalist in the 21st century? Could you make a career from writing about theatre? How do you become an editor? Join Guardian theatre critic Mark Fisher for a lively and informal talk about life as an arts journalist. Question-and-answer session follows.

After graduating with a degree in drama from the University of Kent, Mark Fisher settled in Edinburgh where he has become one of the foremost commentators on the arts. With over 25 years' experience, he is the Scottish theatre critic for The Guardian, a former editor of The List magazine and a freelance contributor to Variety, The Scotsman and Scotland on Sunday

He is the author of The Edinburgh Fringe Survival Guide ("A wonderfully practical but also inspirational book full of good advice" – Lyn Gardner, The Guardian) and the forthcoming How to Write About Theatre (both Methuen Drama).
