A four-week, hands-on online course for reporters and editors who want to work on investigative journalism, that functions as an important part of democracy.
This popular online group seminar will help you build an investigation, from the seed of an idea to a powerful execution.
Investigative journalism can seem daunting. By definition, it involves uncovering a problem someone would prefer to keep secret. It requires critical thinking, persistence, courage and optimism. It can be lonely work.
Over the course of four weeks, award-winning investigative journalist Alexandra Zayas will break down the process to help the trainees think about what kinds of stories to choose and how to build a bulletproof case.
The online course begins on April 27 and ends on May 18, 2022. Live sessions will take place on Wednesdays at 3 p.m. Eastern. Participants are strongly encouraged to attend the live session, but sessions will also be recorded in case something comes up.
In addition to the live instruction, participants will interact in an online forum and complete weekly assignments. Alexandra Zayas will be available to talk through participants’ projects with them.
