YOUR community news magazine has gained an extra pair of hands.
Steve Curtis, a journalism graduate from Portsmouth University, joined the Xn team at end of September.
The 21-year-old will be working as an intern until Christmas, reporting on events from across the Thames Valley.
“My mum had heard about the magazine through her church, and figured that as I was a journalism student, I might as well get in touch,” Steve said.
“I’m very happy to be here and to work with an editor with such great experience.
“This magazine is exciting and has a great vision, so it’s a privilege to be a part of it.”
Steve’s role will mean that Xn will be able to expand its news coverage, adding breaking news to its website across the month.
“I look forward to meeting plenty of inspirational people during my time here, and hope to develop some new relationships with the people of this community,” Steve said.
Phil Creighton, editor of Xn, said: “So far, the Xn team has been just myself and some willing volunteers.
“Steve is a great addition to our team and I’m looking forward to working with him.”
