On Thursday, December 8, 2016 the International Examiner and 21 Progress hosted the second installment of a five-workshop series about citizen journalism led by experienced media producer Matt Chan.
The focus of the 2-hour workshop was how to construct an engaging and compelling story. Renowned media lawyer Stacey Walters also presented as a guest speaker on citizen journalists’ rights in legal areas such as defamation and privacy. Discussion included opportunities for attendees to get advice from Chan about current stories they’re working on and from Walters on specific areas of media law.
The next citizen journalism workshop, focused on pre-production for video storytelling, will take place in January 2017 (date to be determined). To receive updates about the International Examiner‘s events, you can subscribe to our events newsletter.
