The five-day seminar "School of theatre journalist" in Petrozavodsk is closed. The Musical theatre of Karelia and Barents Press Russia provided a ground for creativity for thirty young journalists who write about theatre.
On the basis of Petrozavodsk theatres young professionals discussed the most topical issues in cultural journalism. In the evening they watched performances, writing reviews at night, and in the morning took it to pieces together. Master classes, discussions, heated debates were good experience for young critics.
