Every journalist needs a good editor. Re-posting our #JFest promos with the correct date.
Political wrongdoing, racism against immigrants and downtown development in Edmonton. Those are just three of the topics that will be discussed at #JFest, a free public event happening this Friday, May 27 at 7:00 p.m. in the Coast Edmonton Plaza Hotel.
It’s an opportunity for some of the city’s top journalists - including investigative reporters Charles Russnell and Jennie Russell, documentary filmmaker Brandy Yanchyk and award-winning journalist Omar Mouallem - to give you the inside scoop on the stories they’ve been working on. http://ow.ly/i/jHCex http://ow.ly/i/jHCeY

#CAJ16 is happening May 27-29 in Edmonton, with a stellar program and line-up of panellists, thanks in part to our partnering sponsors.


We’ve got sessions on how to fund journalism, the importance of local journalism, MMIW, coding in Kenya, lots of data-journalism, and the latest on mobile video because of them.

The full #CAJ16 program is available here: http://ow.ly/fTnr300renS

Early bird rates for members are $249 plus taxes for the full conference, including a ticket to the conference banquet and 2015 CAJ Awards gala on May 28, hosted by CBC Edmonton's Mark Connolly. There is also a rate for students and unemployed journalists starting at $50 a day or $75 for both days. Register here: http://ow.ly/jOrl300reqr

Our Saturday keynote at #CAJ16 is Catherine Gicheru, an award-winning Knight fellow who supervises teams of data journalists and technologists @CodeforKenya.

Hear from the practicing expert how newsrooms can bridge the gap between “techies” and journalists with stories to tell: http://ow.ly/4pTO300dLbI.

At #CAJ16, we’ll be joined by Charles Lewis, founding executive editor of the Investigative Reporting Workshop at the American University School of Communication in Washington, D.C.


He’s leading a session on how to get paid to do investigative journalism in our current newsroom climate, where layoffs abound and resources can be scarce for long-term projects.

We hope you can join us. If not, follow #CAJ16money on Friday, May 27 for more info: http://ow.ly/dCvd300dN9e.

Becoming a podcaster: maybe you’ve thought about it before, and maybe you have a great idea.

At #CAJ16, hear from Karen Unland and Zain Velji--a former journalist and a strategist who both moonlight as podcasters. They’ll give you helpful tips to start your own audio series: http://ow.ly/kb203001GNy.
