"Gave me live, hands-on experience of researching to deadlines and preparing pieces of writing under guidance, for a variety of publishing forums. After a placement with Ninth Wave I now have a portfolio of genuine merit. " - Florence Wildblood, journalism student

Ninth Wave Global are offering placements for writers and journalists of all career stages to develop their skills in a unique setting, working through local, national and international media channels while immersed in community projects in the city of Campeche, south-east Mexico.


These residential programmes allow for you to live and work as part of a thriving community in Campeche, with accommodation and potential involvement in Ninth Wave's wider journey and community programmes, recording stories, landscapes and impressions from the forefront of community and environmental projects alongside developing your personal portfolio.


As part of these placements, you'll cover diverse local initiatives while working as part of an international team, gain experience as a research assistant working on politics and current affairs supporting Talk Radio's (UK) Latin America correspondent, and interact with local television stations and develop content for online and print outlets. Opportunities for pieces will cover a broad scope, from political events, travel writing, environmental news and arts journalism to promotional copy, funding documents, content for online communities and research reports.


To take part, you’ll need to be a motivated self-starter who’s happy pursuing research and projects without prompting. Within this framework, you’ll have a mentor who will respond to, support and offer feedback on your work, assisting with every stage of your development from editing to pitching, and introducing you to tasks, initiatives and potential collaborative partners according to the areas you’re interested in pursuing.


Placements are flexible and can be adapted from 3 weeks up to 4 months. Tuition and accommodation fees will vary according to length of stay and specific requirements. Please note that we are a not-for-profit organisation and will gladly support any external funding applications pursued by individuals to cover the costs of their stay.
