Citizen Journalist

Citizen Journalists are passionate about their city and want to make sure their friends and neighbors are informed about important news impacting their city. In recent years, newsrooms have been hit hard with major budget cuts resulting in less coverage of local government, nonprofits, arts education and much more. Citizen Journalists are filling this void and projecting the voice for the citizens in their city.

You can use our Citizen Journalist Toolbox to learn the principles of ethical journalism, investigative reporting, how to get published online or start your own website.

The Citizen Journalist Toolbox includes introductory and advanced tutorials, downloadable how-to guides, expert coaching and testimonials from successful Citizen Journalists.
