to excel in local news coverage.

Participants include Ben Montgomery, St. Petersburg Times; Connie Hale, author of Wired Style and Sin and Syntax, and Director of the Nieman Program on Narrative Journalism; Mary Newsom, The Charlotte Observer; and many other special guests and Nieman Fellows.

Workshop topics include conducting investigative reports on a dime, writing short narratives on deadline, increasing readership, and much more.
