Want to become an IndyKids reporter and share your work with other kids around the country? Enroll in our journalism workshops!
In the Kid Reporter journalism workshops, students go in-depth to explore media literacy and learn how to become an effective journalist. Working one-on-one with professional journalists and editors, students can take part in every aspect of producing the IndyKids newspaper – from choosing which stories to cover, researching and writing the content, interviewing subjects and reporting on-the-ground for their stories, editing their work for publication and finally, distributing the final product to a growing, national audience of their peers.
The Kid Reporter journalism workshops take place in New York City and are open to all kids ages 9-13. They will be from noon to 3pm on Saturdays, 1/18, 1/25, 2/1(optional) and 2/8, 2013. Click here to reserve your spot in the next workshop! Can’t make the workshop but want to write with us? Fill out a Kid Reporter application online here.
Beginning in September, 2013, IndyKids will be charging each student a $100 fee per workshop (three/four sessions included) for the 2013-14 Kid Reporter workshop series. The fee will be waived for students who return to the remaining series of workshops through June, 2014 upon availability. Scholarships are available.
