“If your aim is to change the world, journalism is a more immediate short-term weapon.”
-Tom Stoppard, American Playwright
In today’s atmosphere of misinformation, “fake news” accusations, and limitless access to worldwide research and communication, investigative and journalistic skills have never been more crucial to the health and wellbeing of our communities. Midpen Media strives to amplify local voices and empower local activists through media-making education and opportunities. This summer we are launching our Youth Journalism Institute – a hands-on summer camp experience where teens will learn to ask questions and tell stories with the power to change the world. Students will be trained in all forms of news media communications, including news writing, journalistic podcasting, photojournalism, and short documentary video production. They’ll come away with a researched, polished, and published story reflecting issues relevant to their communities – and with the tools to continue finding and reporting the stories that need to be told.
