  • Journalism

    by Ryan Imel

    In this session Ryan will explore the ways WordPress is uniquely positioned as a platform for journalists, the exciting ways it’s being used in journalism today, and offer ideas that you can implement right away. We’ll look at how independent journalists and larger teams alike are using WordPress to power their publishing.

    Session Preview: Empowering Journalists with WordPress
    Journalism is, very simply, the practice of reporting events and issues of interest to a specific audience in a timely fashion. As you can imagine, the internet has been playing a large part in the evolution of journalism for some time now.

    When it comes to WordPress and journalism, there are two primary groups we’ll be considering in the session. One group is news teams, and the other is individual journalists serving niche audiences. We’ll look at each group and how they take advantage of WordPress, why they chose it, and how to implement what they do in your teams.

    The session’s goal will be to highlight how to fine-tune WordPress specifically for a journalist’s purposes, and how to construct a publishing workflow that will work no matter the size of your organization.

    At 2:15pm to 3:00pm, Saturday 25th February
