The Public Newsroom is open! We’re very excited to host essayist, poet and academic Eve Ewing at Build Coffee (located right next to our South Side newsroom) for our first in a series of Public Newsroom workshops.
*Space is limited so please arrive early to get a seat!*
Eve’s Public Newsroom workshop will be a hands-on gathering focused on media, reporting and narrative, and you’re invited. Come prepared to learn from your neighbors and local journalists at the event, share your own story ideas and engage with the newsmaking process from the ground up.
NOTE: There will be a separate spillover room for attendees who do not get a seat in the workshop. We’ll also be Facebook Live(streaming) the event for those who can’t attend in person.
