Do you ever flip through the pages of The Uniter and wonder, “How could I get my work in there? Why don’t they write a story about me?”
If so, we’ve got some answers for you. Next week, as part of Culture Days Manitoba, we’ll be hosting a panel discussion called Interacting with the media for artists and activists.
We hope this will be an opportunity to get to know campus and community media outlets. We’ll be sharing tips geared towards local community builders and creative people around how to connect with smaller media outlets.
This discussion will be free and open to all, so if you’re a seasoned artist or activist and have some tips to share, by all means, come on down and join the fun!
The Uniter is a learning paper, and most of the time this means that we’re here to help our contributors – writers, photographers, illustrators and editors – learn and hone their craft.
But as we’re often one of the first media outlets where smaller organizations, artists and causes get covered, we thought this would be another great opportunity to extend our learning paper role out into the community a bit more.
If you’re curious about telling your stories in this paper or pitching your ideas, your work or your cause, please join us on Sept. 30 from 12:30 to 2 p.m. in The Hive at the University of Winnipeg.
Search for the event on Facebook for more information about the panelists and bring your best questions forward. I’ll see you there!
