Z3 Videos on Youtube

[Author’s note (7/7/2021).  Some budding writers for Fiji Times have recently been asking me for advice on how to write articles for the media.

I referred them to the videos at the bottom of this page (A Pacific economist as a journalist), which are clips of a 2007 lecture I gave to USP Journalism students, much of it still relevant today in 2021].
