NewsTrain coming to Massachusetts, Ohio, Oklahoma and Washington in 2017

APME’s NewsTrain will bring its high-quality, affordable training to Massachusetts, Ohio, Oklahoma and Washington state in 2017.

Here are the locations for the workshops, which have an early-bird rate of $75 each to attend:

  • Beverly, Massachusetts, about 26 miles from Boston;
  • Columbus, Ohio;
  • Norman, Oklahoma; and
  • Seattle, Washington.

Please sign up here  to be emailed when more information becomes available on the dates, agendas and instructors for the workshops.

The sites were selected from applications by committees of local journalists throughout the United States. The successful committees are conducting an assessment of the needs in their newsrooms to determine what skills will be taught at the workshops.

Since 2003, NewsTrain has served more than 7,000 journalists in 84 workshops. It has traveled to all 50 states, bringing cutting-edge training close to home. Attendees consistently rate its interactive sessions as 4.5, with 5 as highly effective and highly useful. Instructors are accomplished journalists with both front-line and teaching experience.

NewsTrain’s low tuition is made possible by donors, big and small, who in 2016 included The Associated Press, The APME Foundation, the Samuel I. Newhouse Foundation, GateHouse Media LLC, Pepper Hamilton LLP, Levine Sullivan Koch & Schulz LLP, the Scripps Howard Foundation  and APME past and present board members.

We’d also welcome your financial support. To keep NewsTrain serving journalists in their communities, please donate at bit.ly/NewsTraindonate

For updates on NewsTrain’s next stops, follow us on Twitter @NewsTrain or like us at Facebook.com/NewsTrain.

You can find the slides and handouts from past workshops at slideshare.net/newstrain. They include useful tips on using social, video, mobile and data.
