South Side Weekly Workshop Series: Ethics of Journalism
PEN America is partnering with the South Side Weekly on a series of eight hands-on workshops for different journalism skills. Journalists have a lot of power, and when reporting, it’s crucial to do your best to avoid harm to the communities you’re covering and to ensure that your reporting is fair. Learn about journalism ethics and come prepared to discuss some tough ethical scenarios.
