What You Need to Know About Food Policy
Food policy touches every beat and every home. What do you need to know about food security and safety issues? What are ongoing trends in efforts to fight childhood obesity and hunger rates? From the federal farm bill to crop modifications to cottage food laws, the business of food is big in D.C. How powerful is the food lobby in Washington and in state capitals when it comes to government regulation? As a reporter, how do you cover this beat?

The Fine Art of the Interview: Turning story subjects into storytellers
Interviewing is the most essential tool of journalism, no matter the platform or style. Yet many stories fail before a writer ever sits down at the keyboard. They suffer from the question not asked, the detail not gathered, the description not noticed. We'll explore interviewing as both art and craft – a range of skills that can be learned and strengthened over time, and applied to different reporting situations. We’ll look at interviewing as more than the usual Q-and-A, but rather as a vibrant dynamic that elicits dazzling quotes and relevant anecdotes, and turns subjects into storytellers. We'll discuss the purpose of various interviews, and explore how the purpose shapes the approach. Time allowed, we'll do some troubleshooting around your thorniest interview challenges, from gaining access to asking that tough question.

Working Without a Net...and Avoiding Plagiarism

You used to have an army of people who could check your work before it was published, or you never did. Either way, you're now your own copy editor, proofreader, fact-checker. We'll explore ways you can edit your own work better, finding those pesky mistakes before a reader can call you out on them. And while we're at it, we'll explore ways of preventing and spotting plagiarism, black eyes on the journalism industry. JAWS teamed up with ACES and several other journalism organizations to write a book on the issue, and we'll share some its recommendations.

Affordable Care Act and How to Cover It
Although the Affordable Care Act was signed into law in 2010, many key provisions, including Medicaid expansion and health insurance exchange marketplaces, are only now going into effect. With goals to reduce deficits and Medicare spending, health reform aims to shift from a fee-for-service model to a pay-for-performance approach that rewards quality over quantity. Key changes include millions of patients expected to enter the system, increased protections for enrollees, and penalties to providers for poor outcomes. Hear from leading health reporters on how the overhaul will affect patients, hospitals and physicians, small businesses, and insurance companies and how to cover the nuances of health reform.

Show Me the Money: Funding your dream journalism project(s)!

Get inspired, women! These journalists have thrown off the shackles of “traditional” jobs and struck out on their own. Well, actually, in some cases, they used their day jobs to fund their dream projects, working on weekends and nights, reporting during vacations and, in one case, taking work calls in the recovery room after giving birth! Three journalists will tell their personal stories of funding their dream projects, along with the steps - and pitfalls - they took along the way. Laura Amico created Homicide Watch, an online journalism organization that uses original reporting, primary source documents and social media to build a live public and comprehensive resource on violent crime. Erin Polgreen created Symbolia, a tablet magazine of illustrated journalism that pairs incendiary reporting with thoughtful illustration and comics. And Habiba Nosheen directed Outlawed in Pakistan, which premiered at Sundance Film Festival and was called "among the standouts" of Sundance by The Los Angeles Times. A longer version of the film aired on PBS FRONTLINE. Nosheen's 2012 radio documentary, What Happened at Dos Erres? aired on This American Life and was called "a masterpiece of storytelling" by The New Yorker.

In short, you’ll leave feeling inspired. And you’ll leave with practical advice on realizing your dreams!

These videotaped interviews with prominent women journalists are produced in honor of Fran Lewine, a founding member of JAWS. Fran was a leader among women journalists in the 1950s, ’60s and ’70s, protesting discrimination against women in jobs and assignments. She was president of The Women’s National Press Club at a time when some major journalistic organizations excluded women or limited their participation. The efforts of Lewine and other reporters eventually led to such groups as the National Press Club and the Gridiron Club opening their membership to women.

Feminism and Journalism 50 Years After ‘The Feminine Mystique’
As we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Feminine Mystique, we want to explore how feminism is relevant to journalism in 2013. We have won many battles, thanks to the sacrifices of many women. And yet, according to the most recent report by the Women's Media Center, the numbers lag in terms of women in leadership, the number of female bylines in major media, the number of female sources in stories, and the number of females on op-ed pages and as commentators in broadcast media. So is feminism still the best answer for addressing these issues? Is it still as relevant for young female journalists as it was for the women who paved the way for the rest of us? If so, what does feminism offer for today's young journalists? How is it different from the earlier days of the women's movement?

Job Search Strategies
Today’s journalism job search is dramatically different than it was a decade ago. Heck it’s different from what it was five years ago. The panel will explore job search strategies from what skills you need to have to land a job today to how to use the skills, talents and years of hard work to land a job that you may not even know it exists. We’ll discuss how to use social networks, sites such as LinkedIn, and other offline networking ideas to land the job you want in journalism today.

Technology Training: Tableau Demo

This session will give you hands-on training with Tableau data visualization software. Bring your own PC to the training--only a few loaners will be available. Tableau Public is for anyone who wants to tell stories with interactive data on the web. With Tableau Public you can create amazing interactive visuals and publish them quickly, without the help of programmers or IT. Tableau offers hundreds of visualization types, such as maps, bar and line charts, lists, heat maps and more. Tell stories about places with Tableau's built-in mapping, which automatically geocodes down to the city and zip code level. Tell stories about trends over time with Tableau's built-in date functionality, which lets readers filter to a time period or drill down from months to days to hours.  Or combine views into a dashboard to show different sides of the same story.
