Community Journalism Class – ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS!


Apply for PSA’s 2024 Community Journalism class!  

*** May 18 Deadline  Act now! ***

In 2023, Public Square Amplified launched a pilot community journalism class. Innovative and revolutionary, its success demonstrated the important potential of building community journalism — supporting and catalyzing storytelling from perspectives and communities that have been historically ignored and marginalized.

PSA’s “Citizen as Journalist” class of 2024 will take participants through an experiential learning process that inspires storytelling that centers the voice of activists, students, workers, and immigrants.

If you or someone you know might be interested in this unique opportunity, please share this post with them.

The class opens the storytelling world to community members who are untrained in journalism and news reporting and creates spaces for them to witness events that impact their lives and the transformation of their communities. Those members who are working journalists will be exposed to new ways of centering the peripheral voice and social movements.

Participants will learn to manipulate journalism tools to explore and document their storytelling–to engage in first-person reporting. Participants will be exposed to multimedia production, long-form writing, sourcing, interviewing, photography, and more.

The class will be led by author, journalist, speaker and scholar, Dr. Todd Steven Burroughs.
