The Asian American Journalists Association (AAJA) is excited to announce a series of free Media Access workshops to be held in select cities across the U.S. throughout 2018 to early 2019.
Supported by the Democracy Fund, AAJA’s Media Access workshops aim to teach local community leaders and nonprofits how to “get their news in the news.”
During each workshop, participants receive tips on how to work with media from a panel of local journalists. Participants will also learn how to pitch stories and write opinion pieces for submission to an editorial board. It’s a great opportunity for nonprofits, community leaders and business owners to understand the behind the scenes operations about how news stories get placed and how to become a stronger partner and resource for local journalists.
Stay tuned for workshop dates and locations.* Questions? Email AAJA Program Coordinator Justin Seiter at email@example.com.
