“I am thankful for the opportunity to hear the stories of such a diverse group of women and I applaud Community Media Workshop for sponsoring the workshop.” – Veeta Nowell, Blogging Workshop Participant
Recently, Community Media Workshop partnered with the Global Press Institute to launch a Global Chicago Women Blogger initiative. The goal was to train women from ethnic communities and strengthen their blogging skills. Women from different ethnic backgrounds including Polish, Mexican, African-American and Arabic came together to participate in the all day blogging workshop.
Participants learned storytelling techniques to help them tell compelling stories about issues impacting their communities in Chicago. From this group of bloggers, 10 women were selected to be part of a local Global Chicago blogging initiative and will receive additional mentorship, training and a stipend to support their blogs..
Congratulations to the following bloggers:
You will be able to read their blog posts on this website in the coming months. Stay tuned!
