Here at Hot Potato Press, we are considering starting a citizen journalism program where anyone could take 4 or 5 free classes to learn how to identify news, interview sources, check facts, and write articles — and, if they choose, contribute their work here.
Why? Because the importance of strong local journalism matters to our quality of life and our democracy. Because Hot Potato Press aims to tackle tougher topics relating to the environment, health, and social justice. Because we believe that our neighbors crave deeper connections to issues that matter. Because we believe that more voices should be part of our community conversation.
Is this something that might interest you? Would you like more information? Would you like to help shape this program? If so, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for reading.
