Looking to get involved in your community? Palo Alto has a great method to turn community activists into “reporters on the street”!
Palo Alto Online is looking for residents interested in joining our team in covering community issues and events on video. We’ve partnered with the Media Center and are offering a four-week Citizen Journalist Academy to teach video production and reporting skills, after which participants would be ready to produce videos for community access television and Palo Alto Online. Those interested in applying to participate in the June academy should send an email containing a brief description of interest and background to firstname.lastname@example.org. Follow the link below for more information.
Palo Alto Online is expanding its number of online community bloggers. Those who have a passion or expertise, or are just an opinionated resident with thoughts to share about life in Palo Alto, are welcome to apply to become a blogger on Palo Alto Online. Writers selected as featured bloggers will receive a monthly payment, will be promoted on Palo Alto Online and in the Palo Alto Weekly and are expected to make regular postings at least once a week. Non-paid bloggers may become featured bloggers by generating a high number of page views and comments on their blog. For more information, email email@example.com or call Tyler Hanley, online editor, at 650-326-8210.
