INDIANAPOLIS – The Society of Professional Journalists announced today the second set of Narrative Writing Workshops for early career reporters and front line editors from small and mid-size daily newspapers. Workshops will occur Saturday, June 10 in Atlanta on the campus of Georgia Tech University and on Saturday, June 24 at St. Louis University in St. Louis.

Designed to encourage the transformation from inverted pyramid-style writing to the art of storytelling, these full-day workshops are led by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, Tom Hallman, Jr.

“During the workshop, participants will learn ideas for narrative reporting, the daily get, long form narrative storytelling and strategies to take back to the newsroom,” Hallman, Jr. said. “Narrative writing is a true gift and I look forward to teaching my craft with future narrative writers.”

In 2001, Hallman, Jr. won the Pulitzer Prize for feature writing for his series of articles in The Oregonian. Additionally, he has been the recipient of every major writing award for journalism, including multiple American Society of Newspaper Editors awards, a Scripps Howard National Journalism Award, a National Headliner Award and a Nixon National Writing Award. A reporter for more than 25 years, Hallman, Jr. has been at The Oregonian since 1980.

Narrative Writing Workshops cost $35 for SPJ members and $50 for non-members. Late fees shall apply for registrations received less than two weeks before each workshop date. Workshops will take place from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. For complete details or to register, visit http://www.spj.org/nww.asp or call Heather Porter at (317) 927-8000, ext. 204.

Founded in 1909 as Sigma Delta Chi, SPJ promotes the free flow of information vital to a well-informed citizenry; works to inspire and educate the next generation of journalists; and protects First Amendment guarantees of freedom of speech and press.
