News Summer School on Zoom

As the pandemic makes it impossible to organise events, including Summer Schools, The Information is now launching an online summer opportunity for those interested in journalism. This Summer School is free for anyone who gets admitted as the aim is to support young people to navigate in this tricky industry especially now during these unprecedented times.

Jessica Lessin the CEO of The Information pulled together her colleagues in this field to work together and provide an online training as these summer schools can give the needed learning support for young people who wish to work in the news sector.

Among the colleagues we will see:

— The editor of Politico Carrie Budoff Brown on covering the White House and the 2020 Election
— New York Times media columnist and former Buzzfeed editor-in-chief Ben Smith on “reporting in public” in the digital age
— Fast Company editor-in-chief Stephanie Mehta and creative director Mike Schnaidt on digital design, creativity and the future of magazines
Nicholas Carlson, global editor-in-chief of Insider, on getting a journalism job and finding your beat
Peter Kafka, the host of Recode Media, and Lydia Polgreen, head of content from Gimlet, on the media business, and how to master podcasting
Kevin Delaney, Quartz founder and New York Times Senior Editor, on how to innovate at the intersection of news and product
— The Information founder Jessica Lessin and Evan Smith, founder of the Texas Tribune on news entrepreneurship

And many more…
