You’ll learn from Pulitzer-prize winning reporters Tom French and Jacqui Banaszynski and a team of Poynter faculty and guests.

You’ll learn:

  • How to make complex reporting on subjects like business, science and health accessible to non-professionals

  • How to turn ambitious investigative projects into great “reads” that hold your audience from lead to kicker

  • How to infuse your daily reporting, on deadline, with memorable characters, vivid scenes and focused story lines

  • How to transform dry works of non-fiction into compelling narratives

  • How to develop the heightened senses necessary for gathering the details, nuance and dialogue that distinguish the best narrative reporting and writing
