NEW: Journalism Workshop at the Iowa City Public Library

If you’re trying to find a program to participate in this fall, look no further — starting this Monday, September 10th, Malini and I will be presenting a journalism program for teens at the Iowa City Public Library.

We’re so excited to be heading to Iowa City (virtually) and meeting all the participants. Working with the Iowa City Public Library has been nothing short of amazing, and we can’t wait for what’s next.

NEW: Journalism Workshop at the Chicago Public Library

Starting July 6th, I will be teaching a six-week journalism program at the Chicago Public Library in Chicago, Ill.

YOUmedia Chicago, the space that has helped bring this workshop to life, is in 23 library locations and offers a plethora of creative resources. It has been a delight working with the YOUmedia team and I’m so excited for a collaborative workshop that inspires teens to take action, this year’s Chicago Public Library Summer Reading theme.

NEW: Virtual Student News at the Hudson Library

Starting July 8th, I will be teaching a six-week journalism program at the Hudson Library & Historical Society in Hudson, Ohio.

Growing up, I loved visiting the Hudson Library, where I spent my summer buried in books or volunteering with the Summer Reading Program. The librarians truly care about creating fun, creative opportunities for kids in Hudson, and I’m excited to connect with tweens and teens who were just like me, passionate about expressing themselves and learning more about the world around them.
