Audio workshop for early-career professionals focused on Indigenous storytelling heads to New Mexico for a second fall program

The NPR Next Generation Radio Project and the Indigenous Journalists Association announce a second fall 2023 NextGen Indigenous workshop in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Nov. 13-17.

NextGen Radio: Indigenous spent a week in Tulsa, Okla. during the first week of October. For the first time, IJA and NPR partnered to offer a second fall program. Applications for the Albuquerque workshop are due by midnight MT, Wednesday, Oct. 15.

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
