TheSolutions Journalism Networks (SJN) Portland-based Community, theSPJ Oregon Territory Chapterand Online News Association-Portland (ONA) are partnering to offer two important FREE workshops in October for reporters, editors, the support people who work with them as well as journalism students interested in the pursuit of excellent, engaging and impactful journalism. Here's the first one:
On Thursday October 12, Brent Walth, a Pulitzer Prize winner who teaches journalism at theUniversity of Oregon School of Journalism and Communication - Portland, will lead a workshop and discussion about how combining the traditional methods of investigative reporting with the innovative practice of evidence-based solutions journalism is showing how citizens and community leaders can solve significant social problems.
Walth says, One of the great secrets that solutions journalism reveals is that there are paths through problems that many people think cannot be solved. Bringing these two reporting techniques together is going to be a powerful combination."
Registration is now open for this workshop and our venue has a capacity of 65 people. Please RSVP about your plans to attend: [masked]
