Share this opportunity with your friends

Canvas Network offers a free online course in Media writing. In this virtual newsroom, candidates will learn reporting, writing, researching, and multimedia techniques for all news media platforms, and then they will dig deeper into how social media, community-centered journalism, and multimedia elements can enhance coverage.

It is unlike any other writing, in this course Canvas will use interviewing and reporting with real people to tell real, true stories that contain facts and quotes. Every story must have news value that appeals to the readers, while following a very strict code.

Journalism is made for people who have a burning desire to know everything and share confirmed, factual information with others in a clear and concise style, and Canvas will work together with learners to figure out how they can be that person.

  1. Write and produce professional news content, displaying a command of grammar, spelling, syntax, and Associated Press style.

  4. Demonstrate basic skills of interviewing and researching.
