Build a solid foundation for any newsroom job at this year's #NABJBasics Bootcamp!


Learn from industry leaders and influencers!

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. Knowing the basics of journalism still matters!

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 websites, of course.


Sessions will 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


This Valentine's Weekend, Treat Yourself to Career Development and Advancement Opportunities!

Join Us in Dallas!
