Street Journalist: Understand and Report the News in Your Community
by Lisa Loving Author
World-changing journalism begins with you!
A corrupt politician. A local business in trouble. A neighbor with a heroic story. An opportunity to work together for positive change.
Whatever the stories are in your community that most need to be told, the best person to tell them is you. Whether you're writing for your local newspaper, producing a podcast or video series, or simply sharing what you see and learn every day on social media, the power of journalism is in your hands, as is the responsibility to use it ethically and wisely.
Longtime journalist Lisa Loving opens up the world of journalism, sharing her hard-won skills and knowledge to help expand your media literacy so that you can report on what matters most, hold powerful people accountable, and strengthen your community.

"...a dreamer’s roadmap to success! It goes far beyond a typical How-To book. Future writers aren't the only ones who will enjoy it. Avid news consumers will love this exploration of the skills that go into reporting their favorite stories."
Throughout the 11 chapters of Street Journalist, Lisa provides a down-to-earth depiction of the different styles of reporting, what constitutes a story, fake news, fact checking, creating your voice, and how anyone, anywhere can start reporting today!
Empowering, inspiring, inclusive and saavy. For anyone with a smartphone (so, everyone), curiosity, and the will to make a difference in their lives and the world. A joyous, generous call to action!
