The New Mexico Fund for Public Interest Journalism is seeking support for its a six-week reporting and writing training workshop with veteran journalist educator and mentor Julia Goldberg, former editor of the Santa Fe Reporter and lead faculty member at the Santa Fe University of Art and Design. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know you might be willing to sponsor a student with a donation.
During the program, Goldberg will:
provide curriculum and classroom training for students to develop skills in interviewing, research and writing stories for publication
develop with each student a reporting plan that explores an artist or artistic endeavor in northern New Mexico with a focus on cultural diversity, identity and social change
oversee and edit stories for publication
The program will be six weeks long and consist of:
two weeks of classroom training consisting of two two-hour classes
two weeks of field work for reporting with the student working independently in the field for at least one week
two weeks of writing and editing with the student working in consultation with the program’s mentor for planning and editing.
Work is intended for publication in the Santa Fe Reporter and on www.nmjournalism.org.
Each six-week training session will be limited to four students who must attend the first two-week classroom training together.
Student interns will be paid $500 for the entire internship and receive a certificate of completion with publication of their pieces. The mentor will be compensated.
