NABJ Presents: The Basics Bootcamp 2019
Shaw University
118 E. South St.
Raleigh, NC 27601

Feb. 15-16, 2019



With the digital takeover, most journalism workshops have concentrated on multimedia inclusion, including analytics, search engine optimization and other ways to attract readers. You’ll hear what’s needed in the evolved newsroom. But what about writing a story? Or producing a competent package? As newsrooms change, the mission -- to do good work -- stays the same.

Panels for the two-day intense training will discuss balancing writing an article with the increasing demands to tell the story through different forms – visuals, social media and the website, of course. Sessions include:

  • The new media ecosystem
  • Identifying, cultivating and effectively using sources and social media
  • Digital ethics including copywriting, privacy and trespassing
  • Real-time field reporting and writing
  • Building an online portfolio
  • Constructing content for online audiences
