Message From EWA's Executive Director
As we turn the page on another
successful National Seminar and another fiscal year, EWA is preparing new
programming and exciting initiatives to support great education journalism.
Later this month, we’ll be lifting
the veil on Story Starters, our new resource for journalists, researchers and
education advocates. This fall, we’ll bring you another Higher Education
Seminar, the details of which will be announced soon. Throughout the year,
we’ll continue providing Web-based trainings through our EWA webinar series and
peer-to-peer connection in our online community, EdMedia Commons. And we’ll
keep offering reporters great pointers online and one-on-one through our public
editor, Emily Richmond.
In all these ways and many more, EWA
helps bring together the community that cares about education journalism. EWA
membership is now dues-free, which means we all need to work harder to ensure
the strength of our community. By making a donation to EWA, you can send a
powerful message that the National Education Writers Association makes a
difference in your work. Your gift will help us pursue our mission of more and
higher quality education coverage. If you’d like to help, click here.
Thanks in advance!
All the best,

Week; and Katy Murphy of the Oakland Tribune will talk about how reporters can

effective summer school. This webinar is free to all members, so
