From writing to photography:  building your skill set.

Are you interested in telling local stories? Do you want to gain confidence in creating journalistic stories,  and hone your writing and photography skills?

Join ‘Grassroots Sudbury Media Collective’ for a morning of workshops.  Lara Bradley (former Sudbury Star journalist) will share story writing and interview skills, while Cait Mitchell (photographer) will share photography and photo essay skills.

RSVP grassrootssudburymedia@gmail.com to save your spot (there is no fee to register).

When:  Saturday, June 16, 10:15 – 1:45.

Where:  Greater Sudbury Public Library (main branch on Mackenzie, downstairs meeting room)

10:30:  Alternative Media (Scott Neigh):   what is alternative media, and how does it differ from main stream media

10:45:  Journalism Intensive (Lara Bradley): A workshop on writing well, interviewing techniques, and codes of conduct.

12:00:  break for snacks and conversation (snacks provided)

12:30:  Creating photo essays (Cait Mitchell):  Photographs are powerful ways to collect and disseminate information.  The photo-essay is inherently influenced by the decisions made and opinions held by the photographer. Through this workshop we aim to better understand how to approach the telling of stories through photographs.
