With more than one in five of Seattle residents being born outside the U.S, “Press for the People,” an event featuring diverse media outlets will be held at the Youngstown Cultural Arts Center in West Seattle, on 4408 Delridge Way Southwest, Seattle 98106. There will be journalism workshops and conversations with Crosscut, South Seattle Emerald, Low-Power FM radio, The Seattle Globalist, KCTS 9, International Examiner, The Seattle Channel, and Seattle Weekly. Participants will be given a step-by-step guide on becoming a journalist: how to generate ideas, interview, produce multi-media photo, audio, video stories, and connect with editors with whom they can pitch their future ideas. They will also have the opportunity to take part in a Seattle Channel video storytelling booth to share their perspective on local challenges and opportunities. Participants should bring a story of coming to Seattle and story ideas for editors at hosting media outlets. Cost is $40 or pay what you can.
Press for the People happens at Youngstown Cultural Arts Center on June 4, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. For more information or to register, visit http://crosscut.com/event/press-for-the-people-a-grassroots-media-workshop/.
