Community media Workshop focuses on ethnic media needs Oct. 28
Community Media Workshop's ethnic news media workshop.
The Community Media Workshop is holding a workshop for journalism students in the Chicago area to learn about the ethnic news media and the possibilities for internships, freelancing, or, hopefully, jobs. The meeting is from 3 to 6 p.m. on Wednesday Oct. 28th at the eighth floor at 1104 S. Wabash, on the campus of Columbia College.
At the session, you'll meet college graduates who have found jobs with the ethnic news media, editors or news directors who are looking for interns or freelancers, and offer some advice about how the ethnic news media might be a stepping stone in this incredibly fast changing world of journalism.
There are over 300 ethnic news media outlets in the Chicago area and they range from giants like Univision to pioneers like the Chicago Defender to up and coming print, radio or television outlets that serve a growing number of Asian, Latino and African immigrants here.
The Community Media Workshop is a more than 20-year-old non-profit that has been helping Chicago communities and organizations make their voices heard.
