Learn to spout off story ideas, track down interviews, cover live events, structure hard news, and construct a compelling nut graph. In this newsroom crash course, you’ll collaborate with a global cohort to write, edit, produce and promote an online publication. Each week, we’ll cover the nuts and bolts of reporting the news and get you out in the field conducting interviews, taking photos and writing stories.

You’ll build a solid portfolio of clips to showcase your talent to future employers.
