What has Journey: Journalism Bootcamp to offer this year?

In only few more days the Journey: Journalism Bootcamp will start: a program for aspiring journalists that focuses on best practices and standards in an ever evolving landscape of modern-day journalism.

The keynote speaker of the 4th year will be Adam Entous, 2018 Pulitzer winner and The New Yorker magazine’s journalist, who focuses on investigative journalism. In his two seminars, he will talk about long form investigative journalism, journalism ethics and source protection techniques.

Students will try out some hands-on exercises as well: Mobile journalism workshop by Evan Perez (CNN) will examine compelling video stories, and students will go out with their smartphones, shoot b-roll, conduct interviews, and edit a short video piece. Paul Casciato (Blue Lake Media) and Michael Kahn (Reuters) will lead a simulated newsroom exercise, explaining how to compile a news story for print, television and internet. Petr Josek‘s (AP) workshop will cover best practices in news photography and will involve some practical exercises as well.

Jessica Bruder (Columbia University) will offer the opposite pole to the quick news reporting: her topics will include interviewing and pitching, and immersion journalism and reporting on subcultures.

Journey 2018 will, however, offer more lecturers and topics, such as telling stories with digital tools, open source investigation and verficiation, working with corporate communications and PR, or spotting the symptoms of money laundering.
