Workshop: Investigative journalism basics

PWAC Quebec is thrilled to announce its fall workshop. Led by PWAC Quebec member Alex Roslin, his workshop Techniques for Investigative Journalism will cover the basic investigative reporting techniques that can be used in all kinds of stories, from short articles to in-depth, long-form projects . This workshop is open to all.

Alex Roslin is a journalist in Knowlton, Quebec, where he lives with his wife Rhonda and two daughters. He is a co-founder and the current president of the Canadian Centre for Investigative Reporting. He has two Canadian Association of Journalists awards for investigative reporting, and is a six-time nominee for investigative and writing prizes from the Canadian Association of Journalists (CAJ) and the National Magazine Awards. He has worked as an associate producer for CBC-TV’s the fifth estate and Disclosure. He is also the co-chair of PWAC’s nominations and awards committee and, in 1993, co-founded The Nation, a Cree bimonthly news and cultural magazine. He keeps abreast of the business of investigative reporting on his blog.

    Do we just show up for the workshop, or do you require registration? Either way, it’s in my agenda and I would like to attend.
