JEEcamp – the Journalism Enterprise and Entrepreneurship unconference
On March 14 I will be hosting an ‘unconference’ around journalism enterprise and entrepreneurship. Rick Waghorn, of MyFootballWriter.com, 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 http://jeecamp.pbwiki.com/ – first come, first served. To add your name, click ‘Edit Page’ – the password is ‘jee‘.

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.
