The Edit: FOI Masterclass

Pondering, puzzled or pained by Freedom of Information requests? The Edit has you covered – we’re hosting a masterclass on FOI with Herald Sun FOI Editor Fiona Hudson.

It will be suitable for all levels of knowledge - so if you’ve never filed a request, don’t be afraid. And likewise if you’re proficient - bring along your curliest questions.

Accessing the documents of governments, ministers and public agencies is a story gravy train and it’s time more of us got on board.

Guest speaker: Fiona Hudson is the Herald Sun's FOI Editor. She has covered a range of roles through a twenty year career at News Corp, including European Bureau Chief, City Editor, and Assistant Editor of the Sunday Herald Sun. Hudson was also heavily involved in the rollout of early iterations of the Sun's iPad app and mobile site.

Date & Time: Monday 1 May, 6:30 – 8pm (forum kicks off at 7pm)

Location: Belleville - Globe Alley, Melbourne VIC 3000
