Looking for a new path in journalism? It may be just around the corner, literally.
Find out why veteran journalists and recent J-school grads are helping to build community news organizations and what these groups can – and can't – provide to their writers, photographers, videographers, designers and editors. You may be surprised. We'll be meeting with several community news leaders who'll provide an overview on the myths, challenges, training, opportunities and satisfaction in building local newsrooms from the ground up.
Guests will include:
TRACEY TAYLOR, Co-founder and Editor of the red-hot site Berkeleyside.com; and
KWAN BOOTH, Senior Community Manager of widely read Oakland Local, and
MICHELLE FITZHUGH-CRAIG, Co-Founder and Editor in Chief of the just-launched Shades magazine,with
