NAJA partners with NPR NextGenRadio Project for second Indigenous-centered digital workshop Nov. 1-6

Second Indigenous-centered digital workshop for early-career professionals will be virtual and co-hosted with NPR station KOSU in Oklahoma City.

The Native American Journalists Association is partnering again with NPR’s Next Generation Radio Project for NextGenRadio: Indigenous, a 5-day digital-first workshop centering Indigenous stories and storytellers Nov. 1-6, 2021. Applications are due by midnight CDT Oct. 7.

This project is open to early career professionals in tribal and mainstream newsrooms, and the project is designed to enhance coverage of Indigenous affairs with Indigenous voices.

Indigenous journalists with less than five years professional experience working in media, journalism, written and audio storytelling in addition to graphic design, illustration or data should apply.

Selected project participants will find and produce their own multimedia story, and will be paired 1:1 with an experienced coach and mentor throughout the workshop. Fellows will produce a 3:30 to 4 minute, non-narrated audio story, write a 500-600 word story about their subject  and create other digital assets.

There is no cost to selected participants, who will receive a stipend for their time and work. 

The first NextGenRadio: Indigenous project launched in March 2021 and can be found here.
