Business and Economics Reporting for Immigrant and Ethnic Media Journalists in New York

Fellows will receive training in blogging and multimedia presentations (audio slide shows, videos, podcasts), as well as on social networking sites such as Twitter and Facebook.  They will produce stories for the Feet in Two Worlds blog (news.feetintwoworlds.org), and for the news organization for whom they normally report.

This three-month fellowship runs from December 1, 2010 to March 1, 2011.  In addition to media training, fellows will receive a $500 stipend and the opportunity to have their work featured on http://news.feetintwoworlds.org and other online news sites.

The training is open to staff and freelance reporters and editors who work in any language. The training will be conducted in English, although the actual reporting may be in a language other than English.  The training will focus mainly on work in the field, although there will also be a limited number of group workshops.

  • Three story ideas for coverage of business and economic issues in New York’s immigrant communities or directly affecting immigrants in New York City.
