That’s why the Utah Headliners Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists is excited to announce this virtual training session all about Solutions Journalism in partnership with the Solutions Journalism Network.

What you’ll learn: The key tenets of solutions journalism: What is it? What is it not? Why is it important? And most importantly, how can you make it happen, from idea to reporting to completed story?

Who it’s for: Any journalist who wants to add rigor and impact to any sort of reporting.

This 60-minute session begins at noon (MT) on Tuesday, Nov. 16. Register for the free session here. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the Zoom meeting.
