Here's your chance to learn what it is, what its key components are, and you'll have a chance to write a solutions journalism piece during the workshop. You'll hear from several guest experts and have opportunities to connect to the Solutions Journalism Network and editors seeking SJ pieces. Christopher Johnston has worked as a solutions journalism reporter for more than 30 years and is well-connected within the profession as a member of SJN and ASJA.
