NPR Next Generation Radio Project, the Native American Journalists Association and Syracuse University partner for digital workshop April 17-21

OKLAHOMA CITY – The NPR Next Generation Radio Project, Native American Journalists Association and Syracuse University announced the cohort for the 2023 NAJA-NPR NextGenRadio: Indigenous in Syracuse, New York. 

This five-day, digital-first workshop set April 17-21 centers Indigenous stories and storytellers. The project is offered at no cost to early-career Indigenous journalists reporting in or near a tribal community, and is an immersive training opportunity to learn more about non-narrated audio storytelling, and other forms of digital journalism. 

The project will be conducted remotely and in-person, with selected participants reporting from their communities, and is designed to enhance coverage of Indigenous affairs with Indigenous voices. Participants, paired with an experienced partner and advisor throughout the workshop, will find and produce multimedia stories.
