With budget cuts and dwindling resources at media outlets, increasingly it falls to freelancers to provide in-depth, on-the-ground reporting in this European war – negotiating the risks and rules of covering conflict without institutions behind them.

Hear first-hand how – and why – freelancers are covering the war in this panel event featuring Jen Stout, radio and newspaper correspondent, whose debut book Night Train to Odesa will be available to buy on the night in a pre-publication exclusive…

Jen Stout is a journalist, writer, and radio producer from Scotland, frequently working in Ukraine. Originally from Shetland she has lived in Germany and Russia. Her reports are often found in the Sunday Post and on BBC Radio.

Jen Stout’s writing is an antidote to the cynicism of war. Night Train to Odesa is unlike any other book you’ll read on Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Jen Stout, working alone (this is one-woman-war-coverage) takes us on a journey through the lives of those enduring and surviving the daily catastrophe of the conflict. Her reporting is caring and immediate and this account is honest, intelligent, and visceral; it is independent reporting at its finest
