Poynter's Rising Stars Reporting Workshop (October 2019)
The secret to success isn’t getting to the biggest newsroom; it’s creating the career you want where you are.

The best reporters have a distinct style that’s not only earns praise, but moves the audience to engage and creates change. In a 24/7 news cycle, standing out is a particularly incredible feat.

Poynter’s new workshop is designed to mentor early-career journalists in a small-group setting to unlock their superstar potential. Participants will grow as investigators and storytellers, and learn how to better manage their personal brand and navigate their career.

Who will benefit
