Interested in citizen reporting and looking to learn more about publishing online journalism?
If so, you may want to attend free multi-media citizen journalism workshops being offered on three Saturdays – May 23, May 30 and June 6 from from 10:30 am – 4:30 p.m. at Millennium Library, 251 Donald St.
From focusing your story idea to writing an outline, from taking photographs and shooting video to recording audio and crafting your final draft, this training will help you publish and promote your story online.
Sessions are free, but advanced registration is required. Each day has three different workshops (one in the morning and two in the afternoon). Participants register for the entire day but are not obligated to attend all the sessions, and instead can pick and choose individual sessions to attend.
CNC Training Sessions Spring 2015 marks the 7th installment of workshops offered every spring and fall since 2012 by CNC, a citizen journalism initiative funded by Knight Foundation and The Winnipeg Foundation, in partnership with The Winnipeg Free Press, Winnipeg Public Library and Red River College.
Descriptions and times of sessions are available here: CNC Training Sessions Spring 2015
Training is not required in order to submit content to CNC, as ongoing editorial assistance is provided to citizen reporters by CNC’s Convener free of charge throughout the year.
Workshop participants are encouraged to register online as a citizen reporter with CNC.
