SPECIAL!! DON’T MISS THIS GREAT OPPORTUNITY

Journalism Workshops, August 5th and 12th
Our two-part community reporting workshop series is for people
from all walks of life who have both a passion for social justice and
a keen interest in learning the basics of journalism. There is a suggested
donation of $20 but no one is turned away for lack of funds.
This is our fifth year of doing these workshops. Award-winning journalists
from The Indypendent and Democracy Now! will cover the
basics of lede writing and organizing a story, interviewing, research
and more. The first part of the workshop is Sat. August 5 from
1 – 5pm and the second part is on Sat. August 12 at the same time.
In our trainings, we emphasize participatory, hands-on exercises
and small group discussions.
To register, call 212-221-0521 or e-mail indyjournalismworkshop@yahoo.com
