Reporting on marginalized and hard-to-reach communities is particularly challenging, intensive work, but engaged reporting — across a variety of mediums — holds the key to collecting tips, an essential step in developing productive, rewarding work that illuminates untold stories.

This session is designed for:

  • Journalists having difficulty building sources and gaining trust
  • Reporters who want to know how to use social media, text messaging and structured submission forms to collect tips
  • Anyone interested in better understanding hard-to-reach groups
