LEYTE, Philippines, March 28, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Manila Channel, a fast growing online news site, recently announced that they will be accepting and publishing news and blogs from freelance writers, communications students and netizens of all sorts.
Bryan Cinco, founder, said on March 27 that Manila Channel is doing this to create an avenue for aspiring and professional writers to develop their skills and improve their craft with online journalism.
"There are several writers that are not yet familiar with online journalism and blogging. We are opening a ground for them to know the relevance of this field and how they can thrive with it," Cinco said in an exclusive interview.
"We are not eliminating how traditional journalism works, we are just opening the minds of our writers that they can reach a larger audience by doing it online as well. This is actually the right time that we embrace the power of online journalism and use it to deliver relevant information," Cinco added.
While Manila Channel is encouraging freelancers to publish their news and blogs with the said online new site, its management makes an emphasis on responsible journalism.
"We want to instill in the minds of our writers that providing information or news online comes with a big responsibility. It's not just about writing. It is also about following the rules and being in adherence with the ethics and law of journalism," Jovelyn Toreno, operations manager, said.
"We want everyone to be responsible with their stories because anyone can read it especially with how fast things can be shared with social media. So they should realize the big picture of it before publishing their masterpiece," Toreno further stated.
Toreno added that anyone who has passion for writing can submit their news and blogs by visiting the official fanpage of Manila Channel and by clicking "Share Your News" which can be found on the right top corner of the page.
"It's actually very easy. They just need to provide all necessary information under "Share Your News" page and after a few clicks, they can publish their stories and share it to the world," Toreno said.
