WASHINGTON, DC, 15 January 2012 — Our latest Backpack Journalism Workshop ended with this group photo (after workshop participant Larry Roberts already had headed home.) From left to right are Nick Dua, Peter Holley, Assistant Esther Gentile (seated), Assistant Nick Ray and me, Bill Gentile. Ours was a small group this time, allowing me to spend significant amounts of time in the field with the participants as they generated media for their final projects. This was one of the most gratifying workshops we’ve ever conducted, as we all got to know each other on a level not common with a larger group.
