Each training will be a workshop-style training, with a short presentation interspersed with hands-on opportunities to test skills. They will stand alone as courses, but attendees who attend all sessions will be able to build upon what they learned in the past training.

These sessions are designed as an introduction to business journalism, both for early career and experienced reporters. Our goal is to empower attendees to find, pitch and write business stories if they choose to.

ajaAre you looking for new ways to cover your beat? Try following the money. Any story can be a business story, if you know how to find it. Attend this hour-long session to learn tips, tricks and strategies seasoned journalists use to find the business angle in any storyline.

Before a reader picks up your business story, you first have to convince an editor to run it. We’ll discuss the ins and outs of the pitch, from selling yourself as an authority on a given subject to making sure editors find and love your prompt — and we’ll also have pros “grade” your pitches on the spot for an extra boost to your skills.

For many writers, the most daunting part of working on a business story is actually writing it. This hour-long session will go over the most crucial steps to keep in mind when crafting a compelling story that will keep readers interested, share crucial information, and not get bogged down in the numbers and lingo one associates with business stories.

Speakers will be announced soon.


The training sessions are free and open to everyone. You do not need to attend all three sessions, although it is recommended to build upon each session.
