WE’RE back from yet another awesome BRATs workshop! Most of the R.AGE team was in Kuala Terengganu for four days last week facilitating the BRATs Kuala Terengganu 2013 workshop, and we had a great time working with the 40 participants.

In case you don’t know, BRATs, The Star’s long-running young journalist programme, is run by R.AGE. Every year, we run three journalism camps, and BRATs Kuala Terengganu was the second this year, after our equally awesome Johor Baru workshop in March.

On the first day of these workshops, the participants, who are selected from all over the country, are given a crash course in journalism by the R.AGE team. After that, we send them out on field assignments where they have to work together in groups to produce articles, photos and videos.

As usual, we have dedicated a few pages here for some of their best stories. Hope you enjoy reading them! They’re all about places of interest in Kuala Terengganu, so if you’re planning to visit some day, make sure you keep this issue as a guide!
