    This is Poynter’s essential seminar for TV news producers. We combine the convenience of live online learning with the intensity of in-person learning at Poynter in St. Pete, Florida. We focus on writing, storytelling, critical-thinking, ethical decision-making, leadership and social media and online writing. Thanks to a grant from the Scripps Howard Foundation, the tuition is less than $300.

    Making stories work involves more than just teases and live shots.
