Workshop with Russia Today


The Institute for Philology, Journalism and Intercultural Communication became a venue for a meeting with Anastasia Serdyukova, manager of American Russia Today website who held a workshop called Journalist in a Smartphone Age and shared how to build a career as a journalist in the 21 century.

Students were given a lecture on how to write texts and titles, extract and prove information, improve knowledge of the world and enhance professional skills. According to Anastasia “one has to be proactive, curious and interested in the things you write about. You’re not likely to succeed when you’re not interested in what you’re doing. It’s sensible to read not only newspapers and magazines but foreign literature as well. Constant practice is essential for a journalist. Moreover a journalist has to be able to take quality photos and videos and edit them”.

Anastasia graduated from SFedU 10 years ago and started to work for Russia Today where she worked her way from an assistant up to the managing editor of the RT website. Russia Today is a largest media company today which broadcasts in Russian, English, Arabian, Spanish, German and French in a hundred countries and serves 700 000 million viewers all over the world.
