Immersive and intensive, the workshop will focus on developing your narrative journalism skills and help you make valuable professional connections. At the end of the day, participants will pitch their story ideas to a panel of editors from prominent national and local media outlets.

The Fi2W workshop gave me practical advice on scripting, recording, editing as well as thought and consideration of big-picture approaches to my work as an audio storyteller. It lit a fire under me to get out in the field and start pitching stories again after a bout of inactivity. [It was] just the burst of confidence I needed to put myself out there and chase down the stories I care about”. – Mia Warren, 2017 Food Journalism Workshop Participant 

Participants from Detroit are especially encouraged to apply.
