Virtual workshop on future of journalism in rural Alabama June 24-26

Join Alabama Humanities Foundation in a virtual workshop June 24-26 on Humanities and the Future of Journalism in Rural Alabama from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. daily.

This free workshop featuring training in Solutions Journalism is aimed at youth and adult community members from rural Alabama places.

Solutions Journalism is an approach that makes how people are responding to community problems into news — instead of making news of the problems.  It seeks to provide insight that others can use. The storytelling focus is on effectiveness, not good intentions.

The workshop is online via ZOOM, and participants may visit area public libraries for access if needed.

Have fun learning while engaging about the history and future of journalism in rural Alabama communities.

This workshop is made possible through funding from the Democracy and the Informed Citizen initiative, administered by the Federation of State Humanities Councils.                                                    

We thank The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation for their generous support of this initiative and the Pulitzer Prizes for their partnership.
