In an age of information overload, it is your responsibility as a trusted Christian magazine publisher to sort through the clutter for your readers. Discover how skilled news curation leads to publishing news that is pertinent to your unique audience. In this four-week online course, you will learn best practices for news curation and how to edit for print and digital publications. Although the principles are the same, the editing process differs depending on your particular media mix. Finally, you’ll learn how to title your online news stories and time their release for the best results among your readership.
Jeremy Weber, director of CT Global, will lead the course with the assistance of his colleagues. Since 1956, Christianity Today has worked to shape the evangelical conversation and brought important issues to the forefront. Hear from these professionals as they carry on that tradition in the digital age with its new opportunities and challenges.
