If you answered yes to any or all of these questions, you're invited to register for the Solutions Journalism Without Borders Write-a-thon and Scholarship Competition!

This is a free opportunity for students and aspiring journalists to learn about solutions journalism, produce a solutions-oriented story under the guidance of course mentors, and network with aspiring journalists from around the world.

Take part in our Write-a-thon and you’ll:

- Learn the basics of solutions reporting
- Write a solutions story about a response to a problem in the student’s local community
- Connect with a group of aspiring and professional journalists from around the world via slack, interactive workshops and a dedicated Facebook/WhatsApp group
- Pitch a completed story which, if successfully vetted by the Solutions Journalism Network may be added to the Story Tracker alongside award-winning journalists and correspondents
- Receive a certificate of completion and digital copy of Solutions Journalism Without Borders e-Magazine compiled of vetted stories produced during the write-a-thon
