JEEcamp – the Journalism Enterprise and Entrepreneurship unconference

JEEcamp banner

On March 14 I will be hosting an ‘unconference’ around journalism enterprise and entrepreneurship. Rick Waghorn, of, will make the keynote speech.

JEEcamp is an opportunity for a range of people to get together to talk about how on earth journalists and publishers can make a living from journalism in the era of free information, what the challenges are, and what we’ve learned so far.

It is also an opportunity for people with different skills and experiences to network, share those experiences, and perhaps suggest partnerships or new projects.

Attendees might have launched their own journalism project – or worked on one within a mainstream organisation. Or they might just have lots of great ideas, or knowledge about the area.

Anyone can attend by signing up on the event wiki at – first come, first served. To add your name, click ‘Edit Page’ – the password is ‘jee‘.

JEEcamp will take place on

Friday March 14 at The Bond in Digbeth, Birmingham (map)

Attendees will be asked to pay £20 towards the costs of the venue – if sponsorship is acquired that money will go to a charity decided by vote.

UPDATE: The event is now listed on Facebook if you want to add yourself there too.
