This newsletter is about to step up its game in a big way. I am absolutely honored and thrilled to announce that I’ve been selected for the inaugural cohort of the Entrepreneurial Journalism Creators Program.
This program is a new 100-day course from the Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at the City University of New York. Starting this coming week, I will learn how to better understand the needs of my audience (that’s you!) and develop a sustainable journalism project. The other 19 students in my cohort include journalists from around the world, working on projects ranging from local news to global health reporting. You can read more about the program and its participants here.
I’m incredibly grateful to all of the readers who have supported this project so far, whether you subscribed to my first issue or just found this newsletter last week. Thank you for your support and feedback on how I can best make COVID-19 data accessible. I’m excited to share what I learn in my course with you, and to grow the scope and resources offered by this project.
