NewsTrain: Great training in your town

NewsTrain is a national touring workshop that has served thousands of journalists in their own cities since 2004. Programs are designed to provide training in the skills, knowledge, and information newsroom leaders need in a rapidly changing media setting.

NewsTrain programs are aimed at all levels of newsroom editors and managers, reporters, copy editors, visual journalists and online producers. College journalism educators and student journalists also find NewsTrain programs valuable.

NewsTrain workshops are available anywhere in the United States and Canada. A workshop begins when a committee of local journalism leaders requests a NewsTrain in their city. NewsTrain staff work with the host committee to plan and deliver a workshop tailored to the needs of local journalists. You can find more information on hosting a NewsTrain here.

NewsTrain programs can include sessions on producing and editing a variety of content, organizational development and management, innovations in digital media, and other skills and knowledge needed at all levels of today’s news operations.Training at the one- or two-day workshops is delivered by experienced journalists and journalism professors.


NewsTrain's low tuition - $75 - is made possible by generous contributions from donors, large and small. You can help by contributing here.
