Feedback from Marion Halbach about this workshop, Winter Semester 2016/17 (translated):

"I was one of the happiest participants of the reporting course with Dr. Kals. I would like to thank the Writing Center from the bottom of my heart for offering this workshop. This workshop has brought me a few steps closer to my goal of becoming a journalist. Through this workshop I was offered an internship with the F.A.Z. and created a high-quality writing sample, which is expected to be published in Spiegel Online. I truly hope that interested students also have the opportunity to also take part in the Writing Center’s journalism courses like this one in the future. After all, every praxis-oriented experience counts on an application." (Photo: © F.A.Z.; Wolfgang Eilmes)
