Workshop planned for citizen journalists
Are you interested in news literacy and teaching news-writing skills to students and citizens? Want to hear from the author of "Be the Media," a guide to making your own news and message? Are you concerned about legal rules governing linking or copying?
A one-day workshop for teachers, advisors, professors, editors and citizen journalists will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, June 28, at the University of Massachusetts Lowell campus. The cost is $39 with lunch or $29 without.
The workshop will be presented by Howard Schneider, former editor of Long Island Newsday and head of the national news-literacy curriculum development project at Stony Brook University, former New York Times correspondent Doug McGill, who runs the Largemouth Citizen Journalism Workshops in Minnesota, and David Mathison, author of the just-published "Be The Media."
