An intensive weekend workshop for ethnic and community media journalists on audio, photography and online storytelling

November 1 – 3, 2013 at The New School

Presented by Feet in 2 Worlds in cooperation with Cowbird.com

For reporters and editors looking for new ways to report on immigrant communities and connect with their audience, this workshop will offer an introduction to audio production (sound gathering and editing) photography for the web and online storytelling.

The workshop will focus on telling provocative and emotional stories using the Cowbird website as a platform.  Cowbird offers a powerful way for media outlets to create new relationships with their audience.  Organizations including National Geographic and Radio Diaries have used Cowbird to collect stories from their readers and listeners.  The same platform is available to ethnic and community media.   This hands-on workshop will provide skills that can be used with Cowbird as well as to enhance any media organization’s online and social media presence.

Instructors include the staff of Feet in 2 Worlds (Fi2W), an award-winning media project focused on immigrants and immigration and the Managing Editor of Cowbird. Fi2W is a project of the Center for New York City Affairs at The New School.

Workshop participants will acquire the following skills:

  • Best practices for audio recording interviews and ambient sound.
  • A basic understanding of audio editing.
  • How to develop a story for Cowbird in conjunction with your website and your social media streams.
  • More effective use of photography to connect with your online audience.
  • How to upload stories to the Cowbird website.
  • How to use Cowbird to build an interactive relationship with your audience.

Applicants may be either staff or freelance journalists working in ethnic and community media in the Tri-State New York area.

Your application should include your resume, the name of the organization(s) that you currently work for, a brief statement of what you hope to accomplish in the workshop, and your contact information including email address, phone number and street address.

The workshop is free, but you must agree to attend all workshop sessions and participate in post workshop evaluation.

The workshop starts at 5PM on Friday, Nov. 1 and ends at 4PM on Sunday, Nov. 3.
