Newsroom Summer Bootcamp
After a successful Spring session, the Sisters in Cinema Newsroom Program will be returning this summer for an all intensive two-week summer Bootcamp!

Participants are taught how to write and report for social media and learn how to be adaptable communicators who can transition fluidly from one medium to the next.

While the fall program/pilot program focused on the basic foundations of journalism and the spring session highlighted writing and reporting for social media, the intensive summer Bootcamp will be a hybrid of the two. By the end of the two weeks, participants will become adaptable communicators who can transition fluidly from one medium to the next. Here are a few of the skills the participants will master:
The basic foundations of journalism
How to write and report for different platforms such as social media, websites, newspapers, magazines, Etc.
How to create a multimedia package
How to overall use social media to enhance their reporting, build their personal brand, and drive traffic to their stories.
The program uses a broad-based approach, including theory and practical experience, and will meet in person at the Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts at the University of Chicago from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM for two weeks on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. A stipend of $250 will be paid to participants upon successful completion of all six sessions and related course work.
