On a Friday, you’re a reporter. The next Monday, you’re an editor. But being an editor is more than just about reviewing copy.

It’s about building relationships and helping reporters push their limits. It’s about pushing your own — changing the way you read, the way you engage with people and the way you make decisions. Mistakes are inevitable. They’re also valuable.

This webinar gets up close and personal with Alexandra Zayas, an award-winning reporter and current senior editor at ProPublica. She’ll offer a glimpse into her own transition from reporter to editor and explain how to use the tips and wisdom she’s picked up along the way.

This one-hour webinar was originally broadcast on Jan. 24, 2019. Once you enroll, you can watch the replay on demand.
