Thanks for visiting The Chennai Emailer. It is run by me—Mohammed Rayaan😊✌🏽. I am a journalist/writer based in Chennai, India.
I won a scholarship from the Facebook Journalism Project to pursue the 100-days online Entrepreneurial Journalism Creators Program at the Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism (City University of New York).❤️
As part of the course, I started this newsletter as my passion project to bring out the best of local journalism from this city that I call home.
A bit more about me:
I currently work as a Sub-Editor for The Hindu BusinessLine. I have worked as an entertainment and features writer for DT Next, an English daily newspaper. Previously, I was also associated with News Today, an English evening daily. 📰
My bylines have appeared on LiveWire, Better India, and on The Opinioc, a publication in the Medium. You can also find my writings on ScrollStack. I have worked with start-ups and entrepreneurs and have created content for their businesses. 👨🏽💻
When I am not a journalist, I write stories of my own, read a lot of books or magazines and I watch TV. Visit my personal site www.rayaanwriter.com if you’d like to connect with me. For queries related to this newsletter, you can reach me at email@example.com | Cheers! 😊❤️
