Journalism: The other writing genre
A workshop with Paul Wahl
Tuesday, September 19,  6-8pm
Fishtrap, 400 E Grant St. – Enterprise
Free, limited to 12 students. Register below.

Journalism is a time-honored writing form, but its practice has come under scrutiny in recent years. “Fair and balanced.” “Fake news.” “Media bias.” Journalism is first and foremost about telling a story based on facts and input from a variety of sources. While most people don’t think of journalism as “creative writing,” it requires thought and preparation –– and creativity.

Paul Wahl, editor of the Wallowa County Chieftain and a 40-year veteran newspaper journalist, will be teaching this two-hour introductory class designed to help aspiring writers and those who seek better to understand the process of journalism. Topics include interviewing techniques, writing effective ledes, balancing competing interest, story arc, headline writing, Associated Press style and photojournalism. Bring a laptop and desire to learn in a fun and interactive environment.
