In this four-day digital workshop, journalists will gain skills to help them tell stories that matter to audiences and that leave a distinct mark on society.
John D. Sutter — CNN Contributor, MIT fellow and National Geographic Explorer — returns as Poynter guest faculty to lead this workshop, bringing in prominent guest speakers who will share their field-tested tips for covering the accelerating social change in 2021. Previous instructors have included Juan Arredondo, a photojournalist whose images explore social inequality and frequently appear in The New York Times; Robert Samuels, a national political reporter at The Washington Post, who focuses on the intersection of politics, policy and people; and Erin Ailworth, a reporter at The Wall Street Journal who has increasingly made “disaster” her beat. Workshop participants will not only learn from experienced reporters during daily sessions, but also have the opportunity to receive one-on-one, personalized coaching from them.
By the end of the workshop, participants will have the skills, connections and inspiration to cover social justice issues safely, ethically and with poignancy.
