Free webinar Thursday for journalists to focus on covering community housing stories
The Poynter Institute is hosting a free webinar for journalists at 2 p.m. (EST) on Thursday entitled, "How to Cover Housing Stories in Your Community." The webinar will focus on ways to "tell engaging stories about income inequality and housing affordability." The webinar, which will be led by Nicholas Nehamas, a business reporter at the Miami Herald, will cover the following topics: how to find and use crucial housing data from public and private entities; where to track down and develop good sources, from people scraping together their monthly rent to high-flying developers; how to identify promising story angles; and ways to craft narrative out of the daily grind.
