Sylvie Simmons: Music Journalism Masterclass | Synapse Knowledge

Ke Sklárně 3213/15, Praha MeetFactory

14. 12. 20:00

This year's edition of Synapse Knowledge, a series of educational music-makers' meetings, will conclude with an online masterclass with Sylvie Simmons, a legend of music journalism, award-winning writer and one of the few women among the predominantly male rock elite who has been writing about music for four and a half decades. She has been hailed as a major player in the history of rock music writing, the BBC even making a documentary about her called The Rock Chick. Sylvie is an editor of the prestigious music title MOJO and has also written numerous biographies, including I'm Your Man: The Life of Leonard Cohen, which has been translated into 30 languages.

As part of Synapse Knowledge, Sylvie will be hosting an online workshop on music journalism, the transformation it has undergone over the past four decades, writing music biographies and the future of rock journalism.

The masterclass will be held via Zoom in English without translation via this link. Participation is free of charge.

​The Synapse Knowledge project is financially supported by the Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic and the State Culture Fund of the Czech Republic.
