Time is running out to apply for scholarships to attend EWA’s annual conference, “Examining the Evidence,” which is taking place May 13-15 in San Francisco. What will you find there? Practical workshops in approaching the beat, new media and finding data. Panels featuring top-level wonks and real-life practitioners. Speeches by an Oscar-winning director (Davis Guggenheim of “An Inconvenient Truth”) and a hot-stuff magazine editor (Joan Walsh of Salon). Conversations with colleagues about how to approach a beat in this polarized climate. Japanese food, I hope. And what journalism conference would be complete these days without a roundtable on the future of our industry? We just happen to have particularly interesting people lined up for ours.
As well, I’ll be available to meet privately, one-on-one. If you want to talk about ideas, a portfolio critique, your approach to the beat or something else, please e-mail me privately so we can set up a time.
