Edinburgh Evening News entertainment editor, Liam Rudden, and STV online reporterJamie Brotherston are to take part in our music journalism discussion at this Thursday’s Born To Be Wide.
Both regularly report on local artists and will join previously confirmed panelists Nicola Meighan [The List/Quietus], Alan Morrison [Herald Group arts editor] and veteran scribe Mark Ellen [Smash Hits, Q, Select, Word].
The night will provide a unique opportunity to meet key music journalists, and find out how they decide which acts to cover. Several speakers are also set to DJ.
Prior to the panel, Ellen will take part in an interview about his career, and will be signing his book, Rock Stars Stole My Life.
Blackwell’s will host a pop-up shop and anyone attending on the night gets a special discount if they reserve a copy in advance from from Ellie.Wixon@blackwell.co.uk [£15.99 instead of £18.99].
