The demand for quality citizen journalism has never been greater. With the newspaper business struggling and new forms of digital media emerging, local writers and reporters are stepping forward. Would you like to join their ranks? In this course, we will review and practice principles of journalism and basic reporting; we will explore traditional and trusted forms of newsgathering as it applies to the new digital landscape. Students will improve their writing and reporting skills and see their work published. This is a very hands-on course with in-classes exercises and feedback from both instructor and classmates. The class is structured both for the beginner and more advanced students. Participants in this class are encouraged to join our team of journalists for MATV's Neighborhood View. Monthly editorial meetings and ongoing training and support are features offered by this program.
Instructor Stephanie Schorow is a veteran journalist who has worked for the Boston Herald, the Boston Globe, the Associated Press and numerous publications, both print and online. She is a professional writing teacher at Regis College and is finishing her eighth book on local Boston-area history.
Workshop Fee: $40
