There are many great journalists who know how important the work is for community and democracy. But how do you make a living and find the money to fund these journalism projects? Stephanie Lulay, managing editor and co-founder of Block Club Chicago and Hugo Balta, owner of Latino News Network go deep about fellowships, grant writing, and even awards when the bills need to be paid.

This session is designed for:

  • Big idea journalists who are looking to launch startups or pitch financially viable new projects to their newsrooms
  • Leaders looking to rake in a little extra cash to support their ongoing projects
