About the presenter:

Darryl Holliday is a journalist and media entrepreneur based in Chicago. He’s the co-founder and News Lab Director at City Bureau, a civic journalism lab based on Chicago’s South Side. In 2011, Darryl co-founded Illustrated Press, a media production collective covering urban issues with comics, sequential art and traditional reporting. He’s been cultivating and supporting innovative approaches to media coverage, newsroom diversity and civic engagement ever since—formerly as a beat reporter for DNAinfo Chicago and the Chicago Sun-Times.

About the series:

Since its founding in 2013, the South Side Weekly has been a teaching paper that offers people with varying levels of experience the opportunity to produce journalism and learn new skills.

We are deepening our commitment to this work with a new regular workshop series offering hands-on sessions in journalism basics. Workshops are taught by Weekly editors or by guest professional journalists, and are always free and open to the public. Workshop attendees will learn about opportunities to use their new skills to produce work for the Weekly or other outlets in the Chicago area.

This event is made possible by the support of PEN America, a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting press freedom around the world. Learn more at
