Along with other social media platforms, YouTube offers young people a new way to connect with others, share their thoughts, and possibly even, become the next big star. The initial investments required are modest, and a smart-phone camera is sufficient for a first attempt. No wonder, then, that it’s proving so attractive – just google “how to become a YouTuber” and you’ll get millions of hits.

In this introductory workshop led by Jean Menzies, learn the basics of vlogging, including how to address the camera, getting connected and setting up a station, and navigating the industry.

Menzies is a creative producer at Pan Macmillan, and her YouTube channel, ‘Jean Bookishthoughts’, has over 50,000 subscribers and 3 million channel views.

Children under 14 must be accompanied by an adult.

This event is sponsored by Yorkshire Building Society.
