We’re recruiting 8 to 10 community-minded folks to participate in Vocalo’s free storytelling workshops. The classes will be taught by multimedia professionals from Chicago Public Media (Vocalo/WBEZ) and will take place at 848 E Grand Ave at Navy Pier, every Saturday from 12-4pm.
Selected participants will come together to identify current events/community issues that impact our communities-at-large. In this season of the workshop, we will produce stories to be pitched to Vocalo shows. We’ll work with this group to craft unique stories for radio and/or digital platforms.
In addition to learning about principles in journalism, audio production, and digital distribution-participants will have the opportunity to have their work featured on Vocalo.org 89.5 FM.
