Meetup Description

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; 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
Host: SF Journalist Group Organizer TOM MURPHY, who is also Founder and Editor of Newswire21.organd

This is the second in our "Rewrite Desk" series of low-cost programs designed to help experienced journalists learn about opportunities in new media.

Cost: FREE for members of the Society of Professional Journalists; $3 at the door for others.

SF Bay Area Journalists is sponsored by the Society of Professional Journalists, Northern California. Co-sponsors include: New America Media; the Center for Integration and Improvement of Journalism;;
