Freelance journalists thrive when they overcome competition and cooperate. This collaborative journalism not only empowers the community, but also improves representation and diversity in the news.
Despite this, many freelancers still become isolated in their work and struggle to tap into the journalism community’s resources.
Tabea Grzeszyk, CEO and co-founder of Hostwriter, explores solutions to this challenge in a new session titled “The future of journalism is collaborative” by the European Journalism Centre.
This nearly 30-minute session explores the power of collaborating across borders or even within the same country or city. It focuses on methods to build contacts that are mutually beneficial, share research and foster collaboration.
In the era of growing distrust of news media, this session illustrates how collaborative journalism improves diversity in the news and contributes to trust and good journalism.
