Backpack Journalism Workshop Ends

WASHINGTON, DC, 7 August 2011 — The Backpack Journalism Workshop ended with some very impressive work by all participants. This has been one of the best workshops that we’ve ever conducted in terms of the dynamic among participants, the flow of the four-day event and the quality of the products. In addition to the in-class instruction, we once again Skyped web marketer Bruce Jones from his Boston office to my Washington, DC, home. Bruce has come to be a core part of the workshop, providing participants with answers to the question that is inevitable after they complete their videos: “Now what do I do with it?” From left to right are Maria Howell, Daniel Sullivan, Ellen Tripler, Brendan Rohr, Ellen Clegg, Esther Gentile, Bill Gentile, Jamillah Abdullah, Nick Ray.
