UNITY: Journalists for Diversity has opened registration for an exciting media summit in Tuscaloosa, Alabama at the University of Alabama.

UNITY: Journalists for Diversity will be hosting community media access workshops aimed to teach local community leaders, non-profits and business owners how to “get their news in the news.” This half-day event will be held at the University of Alabama on October 16, 2015.

Have you ever wondered, “How does that story get on air or into the newspaper?” Participants will learn how to write and make an effect pitch to media. You will also learn how to write an opinion piece for submission to an editorial board and how to use social media tools to engage with media. It’s a great opportunity for community members to understand how news stories get placed and how you can become a stronger partner and resource for local journalists.
