IJA-NPR NextGenRadio: Indigenous in Tulsa, Oct. 1-6, applications due Sept. 10

Audio workshop for early-career professionals focused on Indigenous storytelling returns to Oklahoma

The Indigenous Journalists Association and NPR’s Next Generation Radio Project announce the latest NextGenRadio: Indigenous, a five-day digital-first workshop centering Indigenous stories and storytellers, on Oct. 1-6. For the second year in a row, the project will be hosted by KOSU, with support from Oklahoma State University School of Media and Strategic Communications, in Tulsa, Okla. Applications are due by midnight CT, Sunday, Sept. 10.

This project is open to early-career professionals and is designed to enhance coverage of Indigenous affairs with Indigenous voices. 

Indigenous journalists with less than five years professional experience working in media, journalism, written and audio storytelling in addition to graphic design, illustration or data can apply here. The program is free to participants and past radio experience is preferred but not required.

Selected project participants will find and produce their own multimedia story, and will be paired 1:1 with an experienced coach and mentor throughout the workshop. Fellows will produce a 3:30 to 4-minute, non-narrated audio story, write a 500-600 word story about their subject and create other digital assets.

Selected participants will receive a $500 stipend for their time and work.
