October Workshop

This Saturday, The South Side Newspaper Project will offer a twist on the usual journalism workshop when we let readers go Behind the Scenes of The Stand.

This free event is offered from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, Oct. 20, at the South Side Communication Center located at 2331 S. Salina St.

Syracuse University reporting students will share how they develop their story ideas, and they’ll describe the process they follow to put together an article for the print issue. Community correspondents and The Stand board members will also be on hand to share an inside perspective on how this community newspaper is run.

This interactive workshop allows readers of the paper to ask questions of reporters and share their ideas for stories to run in future issues.

This event is free and open to anyone interested in learning more about how stories get into the paper. Coffee and refreshments will be provided.

The Stand is a print and online South Side community newspaper written for and by South Side residents. As the voice of the South Side community of Syracuse, the paper aims to start a community conversation by inviting residents of the South Side to share their stories. The paper is the brainchild of the South Side Newspaper Project, a collaboration of the South Side Community Coalition, Syracuse University and a number of dedicated South Side community residents.
