ABSW Summer School: Focus on Tech Journalism

The Association of British Science Writers will be running their regular one-day summer school in June 2019, but this year as a satellite to the World Conference of Science Journalists to be held in Lausanne, Switzerland, a few days later.

In early 2018, ABSW Chair Miĉo Tataloviĉ appointed Dr Sunny Bains to organize the programme, this year focusing on skills and tools related to tech journalism.

Current ideas include:

  • Use of data tools and APIs for journalism
  • Investigative journalism resources
  • Industry podcasts
  • Telling stories with data
  • Researching companies
  • Protecting sources
  • Meet the editors/freelancers sessions

If you have an idea for a workshop, a speaker/panelist, or would otherwise like to be involved with this summer school, please contact sunny {at} sunnybains.com.
