I'm excited to announce that we're opening applications today for the second cohort of the Entrepreneurial Journalism Creators Program.
We're opening up this opportunity for journalism creators to plan and accelerate sustainable journalism ventures. We're looking forward to working with niche creators who have started or want to build podcasts, newsletters, sites and other creative ventures that provide news for niche or underserved audiences or local communities.
This 100-day program is our first to be offered exclusively online.
Applications open today and close January 24.
The program will run from March 23 through June 30.
Reply with any questions you have about participating in — or supporting— the program.
Please share this announcement within your network. Here’s a suggested post: Independent Journalists: If you’re developing your own project, consider applying to the 100-day Journalism Creators Program at CUNY’s Newmark J-School to join a cohort of global all- stars as you carve your own path.

Our tweet announcing the application for the next cohort
A preview of the Journalism Creators Program:
We start with the Opportunity Exploration course, guiding creators to refine their understanding of niche communities, and a microcourse on Going Solo.
We progress to Product Development, focusing on developing, clarifying and strengthening product value propositions and offerings. We also add microcourses on Membership, Newsletters, and Podcasting and special sessions on Journalism Innovation.
Then we shift to concentrate on Growth, focusing on how creators can increase the size of their community/audience.
The courses weave in considerations of engagement and revenue and we incorporated technical learnings, like mapping out key numbers (P&L).
The program finishes with the Personal Leadership course, tying together all the necessary skills to become a successful army-of-one niche publisher.
