Saturday: 11:15 a.m.-12:15 p.m. ET: Power Up Your Data Journalism
You can find tons of data these days, but where do you go for reliable data? And how can you dive into that data to find ideas for fresh stories? What are the challenges to telling those stories in ways that engages your audience? We know that effective use of data builds audience trust. For both veteran data journalists and those seeking to power up their reporting with data, this session will provide you with actionable tips and resources.
Saturday 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. ET: Get Your Ideas Funded Now
This session will help attendees — whether a freelancer or traditional staff writer — understand the scope of funding opportunities available for reporting projects domestically and internationally as well as best practices from editors and grant underwriters on how candidates can make their proposals stand out among the competition.
