Learn the nuts and bolts of local journalism and consider joining our team of citizen journalists for Neighborhood View!
Instructor Don Stradley is an award-winning journalist whose books have been best sellers on Amazon. One of his recent books, The War, was chosen by The Progressive Magazine as a favorite of 2021.

The journalism 101 class will focus on the rudimentary elements of journalism. Though the field is constantly changing, and the way we receive our news has evolved, the fundamentals of reporting remain the same.
The class is designed for beginners, those who might be curious about journalism, or those with a bit of experience who might like a refresher. The class is also designed to introduce people to the new world of citizen journalism, and to get them excited about the possibility of contributing to Neighborhood View, reporting on local stories, profiles, events, history and more.
