UTEP hosting workshop on immigration reporting

From our friends at the Rio Grande chapter:

The University of Texas-El Paso will host an institute for reporting on immigration in late September.

Borderzine, Reporting Across Fronteras, invites professional and independent journalists in the United States to apply to its first McCormick Specialized Reporting Institute on Immigration Reform. Fifteen journalists will be selected to take part in the intensive training Sept. 26-29.

The goal of the workshop is to give reporters the tools and a substantive understanding of immigration policy and research to do “compelling, nuanced and well-researched stories about the human face of immigration in their communities.”

The application deadline is Aug. 5. The Robert R. McCormick Foundation furnishes everything from tuition to housing, food and transportation. Find out more and apply here.
