In-Person: Become a Community Journalist

In-Person: Become a Community Journalist
10/06/2022 06:00 PM - 10/27/2022 07:00 PM ET

A one-month boot camp takes you from the very basics of what journalism is to covering a simple local news story and seeing it published.

Newspapers are shells of their former selves and irresponsible operators are taking advantage, calling whatever they dislike “fake news.” That makes the role of citizen journalists, who can fill some of these gaps, more important than ever. In this fast-moving course, students will get a grounding in the basics, watch how city government operates and learn how to write up some local news in a way that serves both democracy and their fellow citizens.

4 sessions - Thursdays, Oct. 6, 13, 20 & 27 from 6-7pm - with Marc Levy of Cambridge Day
