This all-day workshop sponsored by the St. Lawrence Citizen Journalism Incubator (SLCJI) will feature presentations and training sessions led by outside experts and members of the four local media organizations that are leading the SLCJI: Weave News, North Country Public Radio, The Hill News, and Nature Up North. Fiona Morgan, a consultant specializing in the strengthening of local media ecosystems, will facilitate the process of generating collective feedback for members of the first SLCJI cohort of investigative storytellers, and other sessions will focus on story structure, audio and video storytelling, and strategies for putting together a successful investigative plan. Members of the community are warmly encouraged to attend, learn more about citizen journalism opportunities, and offer their input to the SLCJI storytellers. The workshop is entirely free and open to the public and includes lunch. Registration information is available at www.weavenews.org/incubator. Participants are asked to register for this free event by Tuesday, Sept. 18.
