This year’s topic TBD. Check back often for updates!

This workshop is geared toward reporters, editors and all newsroom managers. Sessions and speakers will address various angles of a timely issue.

Topics have recently included climate change reporting, exploring medical marijuana stories, covering PA’s opioid crisis, social media strategies, sports journalism and reader engagement.  Through its Pulitzer-Prize-winning efforts for local reporting, PennLive/The Patriot-News works with the PNA Foundation to coordinate this workshop each year. Together, we recognize that while the tools, resources, formats and products may have changed since Sharon Johnson was writing, a good story and valuable information – whether printed, tweeted or videotaped – are still what readers want.
