U.S. JOURNALISTS INTERESTED IN COMMUNITY REPORTING (fellowship) / by Bear Guerra

Via Press On:

“The Freedomways Reporting Project will bring together eight journalists and storytellers with experienced mentors to pursue community-driven reporting projects. Over nine months (June 2019 — February 2020), participants will receive training and support from mentors and social movement partners to produce a series of stories that help advance justice.

In our aim to strengthen journalism driven by people who are building power within marginalized and oppressed communities, we encourage women of color and LGBTQ people of color who currently live in southern communities to apply.

Applicants that identify with any of the categories below are strongly encouraged to apply.

  • Community Media: Those who work in or are affiliated with community and rural media outlets, including those from non-traditional outlets

  • Organizers: Storytellers who produce narratives that drive power-building across social movements

  • Freelance journalists: Independent reporters focused on community-driven storytelling looking to deepen their reporting on a local or regional issue or community

  • Mid-Career journalists: Reporters transitioning from legacy news organizations to independent media with an interest in community-driven reporting.”

DEADLINE: May 3.
