Collaborative Journalism Workshops

Eat, Teach Learn

Poynter's India Workshops in Chennai, Kochi, Bangalore

Poynter's workshops in India have come to an end.  We have three great workshop sessions in Chennai, Kochi and Bangalore  We shared experiences and learned from more than 250 journalists, editors, educators and students. They taught us about journalism in India. We shared what we have learned. We have captured the Twitter feed #PoynterIndia and posted our observations in our posts and at Poynter Online. We hope to come back for more collaborative workshops.

A quote of note from the Chennai Workshop:
Poynter has broken communication barriers and brought together all types of journalists offering a bright future for them. It's a pointer to professional excellence in journalism. K. KIRUBANIDHI
