Workshop – Creative Strategies for Journalists
Sometimes all you need to be creative is a bit more time. And, that’s exactly what journalists could use more of to discover and examine information sources, using their creative capabilities to their full potential. Get the hands-on tools and techniques to think about your stories more creatively in less time. Very useful for those moments when you don’t have a lot of time or colleagues to brainstorm with. You will go home with new strategies for associating beyond your first instinct. And some new tools that help you keep yourself as creative as you want to be.

There are limited places available, so please sign up!
You will receive a confirmation e-mail with more information closer to the event.
