DEADLINE (Nov 2): SEJ/Poynter Science and Environmental Journalism Workshop on Nov 3, 2014

Event Date: 
November 2, 2014

Making Science Storytelling Engaging and Accurate

Co-sponsored by the Society of Environmental Journalists and the Poynter Institute

This is a one-day intensive workshop that will help science and environmental journalists, bloggers and students produce engaging and informative content.

With increasing demand to produce compelling science stories, journalists are also faced with entertainment successes, such as “Shark Week” and “Sharknado,” that can confuse scientific fact and fiction. As the need for science stories continues to grow, it has left the American public more misinformed about science than ever.

Join us at The Poynter Institute in St. Petersburg, Fla for a comprehensive day of learning how to pitch, investigate and craft compelling science-based stories in a competitive media landscape to accurately inform the public while keeping them engaged.

You’ll learn how to:

  • breathe excitement into your stories
  • pitch to editors
  • tap into research tools that make data accessible
  • begin an investigation into an individual or organization
