API, Poynter to offer new joint program – Mar. 22-24
The American Press Institute and The Poynter Institute will collaborate on a new seminar for newsroom executives.
The joint effort is “Beyond the Newsroom,” a 2.5-day seminar at the API facility in Reston, Va., March 22-24. The seminar will feature Poynter Managing Director Butch Ward and API Associate Director Mary Glick.
They will be joined by a number of industry experts addressing the challenges of providing quality news and information despite newsroom budget and staffing cuts. Among them: Jeff Jarvis, author, blogger, consultant and journalism professor who advises journalists to “do what you do best and link to the rest”; Charles Lewis, executive editor of the Investigative Reporting Workshop and a pioneer in nonprofit watchdog journalism who has crafted successful partnerships with numerous news organizations; and John Wilpers, editor and consultant who works with newspapers to integrate high-quality bloggers into their print and online products to increase their reach, relevance, and revenue.
Seminar participants also will visit the Newseum in Washington, D.C., and participate in an interactive session on the First Amendment.
The workshop is intended for executive editors, managing editors and newsroom leaders from newspaper organizations of all sizes.
