Authors Access 2 - November 8, 2009
On November 5th, 2009 Tyler R. Tichelaar and Victor R. Volkman spoke 
with Toronto-based educator and print, radio, and TV journalist Donna 
Kakonge about how any writer can successfully refocus their work into 
the freelance journalism marketplace. 
She believes that you CAN break 
into the journalism business without having to have a specialist 
bachelor’s degree in the subject. Donna has been involved in the 
Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) and Radio Canada International 
(RCI) on and off for 15 years at the local, national and international 
levels of both television and radio. She has also worked for the 
Discovery Channel and Discovery Channel International, Vision TV, the 
BBC and various publications around the world. Key talking points of 
tonight’s talk were:
 
  * How can I educate myself to start a career in journalism?
  * What important trade associations can help me on my journey?
  * Besides book writing, what other kinds of journalism are out there now today?
  * Should I establish some sort of business identity?
  * Can I make money just form my blogs?
  * What about rejection, how do you deal with it?
