NPR Next Generation Radio Project, the Indigenous Journalists Association and Oklahoma State University partner for digital workshop Oct. 1-6
The NPR Next Generation Radio Project, the Indigenous Journalists Association and Oklahoma State University announced the cohort for the first of two fall 2023 IJA-NPR NextGen Radio: Indigenous programs.
IJA-NPR NextGen Radio: Indigenous is a five-day, audio-focused, digital journalism project centering Indigenous stories and storytellers. The project is offered at no cost to early-career Indigenous journalists reporting in or near a tribal community, and is an immersive training opportunity to learn more about non-narrated audio storytelling, and other forms of digital journalism.
A hybrid (some people in-person, some not) approach gives competitively selected participants the opportunity to learn how to report and produce a non-narrated audio piece and a companion multimedia story. Those chosen for the program are paired with a professional journalist, who serves as their mentor for the week, and the chosen participant is paid a stipend for their work.
A second fall workshop will be held Nov. 13-17 in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Go here for more information.
