On Thursday, September 17, The Rapidian is holding a special new reporter training with focus on contributing content for ArtPrize.

If you’ve ever been interest in writing for a citizen journalism platform and don’t know what that all entails (spoiler: it is actually fairly easy to get started over at The Rapidian!) or if you’d like to report and engage during the Artprize 2015 season- or both- this upcoming training is the excellent opportunity to learn the ropes and get started on community reporting, news and commentary.

As always, we want to be able to provide a space for everyone in the community to engage ArtPrize and the city and community during the weeks of the competition, offer your perspective and expertise and hear what you’ve got to say. This is our community's chance to educate and engage people on how to do so in the world of online journalism.

The training schedule is as follows:

6:30- Basic Training: This time will cover the basics of reporting for The Rapidian and some keys for success article writing and reporting.
7:15- Social time: Engage and interact with CMC staff and other members of the community
7:30-ArtPrize reporter training and pitch time: Learn the basics on art criticism writing, and join us in generating ideas for stories to create for the ArtPrize season.

As part of the 7:30 art-writing trainig, we'll match up writers, photographers, videographers and others who want to be a part of our work.

Snacks and drinks will be provided. The training will be at the Rapidian offices at 1110 Wealthy Street SE.

Hope to see you there!
