Tell your stories: become a citizen journalist pt.2

Citizen journalism - where citizens report on what they observe - is an extremely useful form of media coverage that has become increasingly popular in this past decade. The Internet enabled every user to become a producer of content and distribute it globally through social media. This means that the media landscape is changing- turning into something more participative and in touch with local realities. How can citizens’ journalism bridge the gap between access to information and news? How can citizens' journalism be accurate, include fact-checking and seek multiple sources for a news story? Are you interested in learning how to interview, engage audiences and basic editing techniques?

Join this hands-on workshop to learn how to be a citizen journalist covering issues important to your community.
