NEWS: Journalists-in-training launch online newspaper (Moldova)

Journalists-in-training launch online newspaper

Jan 24, 2005

Six Moldovan college students have launched their own online newspaper after taking a recent journalism course.

The newspaper, named Our Voice, is at http://ourvoice.go.ro/. The site is the collaborative effort of six students in their third year of journalism school at Moldova State University.

The students launched the site after taking ?Professional Techniques of Journalism,? a course taught by Patricia McCracken, a veteran journalist, trainer, and former Knight International Press Fellow. McCracken, an American, was a Knight fellow in 1995 in Czech Republic, Romania and Slovakia, and again in 2003 in Moldova.

The contributors to Our Voice are Dina Anghelenici, Alina Birladeanu, Larisa Durbala, Mihaela Gilca, Olga Leca and Cristina Simon. Their articles cover issues such as early marriage, the Moldovan census, and abandoned children.
