The Seattle Globalist launches its 2015-2016 community media workshop series, “Your City. Your Story. Your Voice,” on Thursday, June 18, 2015. Monthly workshops will run through Thursday, May 19, 2016.
The Seattle Globalist is a nonprofit daily online publication that covers the connections between local and global issues here in Seattle with the mission to elevate diverse voices through media.
“These workshops are the best way for new writers to get involved with the Globalist,” said Executive Director Jessica Partnow in a statement. “Participants will build new media skills and have the chance get their work published.”
The workshops will take place every month from June 2015 through May 2016—save August and December 2015—in diverse neighborhoods from Shoreline to Tukwila. They will cover a range of skills: pitching and developing story ideas; writing with authentic voice, and reporting and interviewing.
The first workshop, “Boost Your Photo Skills,” will take place Thursday, June 18, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at Café Ibex. (Doors open at 5:30 p.m.). The workshop will feature editor in chief and award-winning multimedia journalist Alex Stonehill, as well as contributor Jama Abdirahman.
The workshops are made possible by grant funding from the INNovation Fund.
