APPLY BY OCT. 1 TO BRING NEWSTRAIN TO YOUR TOWN IN 2016


Hosting NewsTrain brings home affordable training in the skills that matter most to journalists in your area. We are seeking sites for three NewsTrains in 2016 to follow our workshop in Lexington, Kentucky, on Jan. 21.


NewsTrain staffers work closely with successful applicants and their host committee of local journalists to determine critical training needs. Then, NewsTrain finds and pays top-flight trainers to address those needs. Attendees’ $75 registration fee is retained by APME.


The host committee’s obligation includes supplying a light breakfast, lunch and snacks for either a one-day or two-day workshop attracting 100 journalists, journalism students and journalism educators. It should seek local sponsors to cover that cost, which can run $1,500 to $3,000, depending on the length of the workshop and catering costs. The host committee also markets the workshop regionally and secures a venue, usually a free or low-cost university site.


Details on how to apply are at http://bit.ly/HostNewsTrain. Questions? Email Project Director Linda Austin at laustin.newstrain@gmail.com.
