About us


In Old News is a place where journalists come together to tell stories and learn new skills.

For this, we host events and trainings, and publish stories by our trainees or even about them. Our first milestone was to set up this space in a way that it allows us to explore interesting stories and the work that goes into the storytelling process. Our next milestone is opening it up by finding more people who would like to contribute to it and helping them in either creative or operational or financial capacities. We use funds and grants for media development initiatives to fund our storytelling, series and trainings. This also helps us add more tutorials and guides to our toolbox. Which is used to train journalists and fund their projects.

In Old News was founded by Sanshey Biswas and Manon Verchot. We are constantly working on improving the stories we publish, how we publish them and who publishes with us. And we'd love to hear from you.
