−True Crime Stories: Relationships and Responsibilities @ Tribeca Film Center7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
There is no doubt that the “true crime” documentary genre is thriving and that such film and television projects are enjoying unprecedented buzz. Studies show that women are their biggest audience, and broadcasters are taking notice. We will explore this phenomenon through an in-depth conversation with creators who make crime stories that matter.
By the nature of their work, non-fiction storytellers are always considering how to present and represent their subjects through the creative process. But how is that further complicated in the “true crime” space, when the stakes might literally be life or death? Where do they draw the line between journalism and entertainment? A panel of filmmakers and network executives will discuss the brass tacks of telling these stories and examine their ethical boundaries and sense of responsibility in developing relationships with individuals whose lives or livelihoods are on the line.

−Covering the Issues Ahead in Trump’s Second Year: Three Day Workshop @ Vanderbilt University9:00 am – 5:00 pm
In this free workshop at Vanderbilt University, journalists will look beyond politics toward issues that are likely to affect nearly every community. You will be equipped with knowledge and awareness to cover some of the most pressing issues that are likely to emerge in 2018. Click here to apply today.
The Affordable Health Care Act: Identify what is not working and what could be done to fix those problems.
Cyber Security: How susceptible and prepared are local, county and state governments to cyber attacks? What about the threat to the nation’s electrical grid and pipelines? What do journalists need to know about issues of private cyber security? How do cyber crimes affect business and finance?
Trade Agreements: It appears likely that there will be some changes to NAFTA. What would those changes mean to business, consumers and manufacturers big and small? What needs fixing? Who would benefit and who would be harmed?
Local and State Governments Taking on Global and National Issues:Maybe it is a sign that Washington is in gridlock and somebody has to do something. But local governments are increasingly at the center of what used to be federal business. From climate agreements to environmental regulations and immigration, local governments are where the action is. The Canadian prime minister met with governors about trade agreements and legislators lobbied governors on the Affordable Health Care Act changes.
The Local Effects of Climate Change: EPA says flooding is becoming more frequent along the U.S. coastline as sea level rises. Nearly every site measured has experienced an increase in coastal flooding since the 1950s. Farmers face changing growing seasons and power companies are logging more demand to cool hot buildings and less demand to warm normally cold ones. Pollen seasons are getting longer and the spread of health worries including Lyme disease and West Nile virus are linked to warming temperatures.
Vanderbilt University is excited to partner with Poynter on this project. Participants will attend sessions at the university’s First Amendment Center. In addition, many lectures will be led by Vanderbilt faculty that are world-class researchers and experts on the topics covered by this workshop.+9:00 amCovering the Issues Ahead in Trump’s Second Year: Three Day Workshop @ Vanderbilt University

−Editors as Curators: How to Engage Audiences with Nimble Newsletters2:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Traditional news outlets, nonprofits, universities and corporations increasingly are using newsletters to deliver information to their audiences. In this webinar, you’ll find out how to edit newsletters for maximum effectiveness.
Newsletters allow publishers to connect with audiences directly. They offer a promise to readers: Allow us in your inbox, and we’ll provide value to you. They can vary in content, tone and interactivity. But despite those differences, the common goal of newsletters is to give audiences what they need or want to know in a well-organized, efficient manner.
And that’s where editing skills come in. Newsletter editors curate information in a logical, readable way. They think about the mindset of readers. Audiences have myriad choices when it comes to newsletters. They face an overload of information available on the internet. But well-edited newsletters can provide order to the chaos.
Editors are key players in this increasingly popular delivery platform for news and information.
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN:

- How to organize content with clarity in mind
