Webinar tomorrow: exploring solutions journalism [for EA writers]:
If EA journalists and writers are planning to cover EA topics, I think a solutions journalism angle will usually be the most natural fit.
The Solutions Journalism Network “train[s] and connect[s] journalists to cover what’s missing in today’s news: how people are responding to problems.”
The Solutions Journalism Network is having a webinar tomorrow: https://zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_Qcbxqd-uRvyvy1OnvVaIPg
“Can be character-driven, but focuses in-depth on a response to a problem and how the response works in meaningful detail
Focuses on effectiveness, not good intentions, presenting available evidence of results
Discusses the limitations of the approach
Seeks to provide insight that others can use”
This is still a less common media angle. The quality of coverage will clearly still vary a lot depending on one’s research, editorial input, etc, but this is a better fit than many other media angles one could take to cover topics of interest to you in EA.
