What I’ll be doing during my Michener-Deacon Fellowship

The amazing folks at the Michener Awards Foundation have recognized the importance of journalism education, and created a Michener-Deacon Fellowship this year that allows for a ‘journalist-in-residence’ at a journalism school in Canada.

More amazing is that I’ve won it.

I’ve had a few people ask me what exactly I’ll be studying/researching/teaching about community journalism at Carleton University from January to May 2013. So, I decided to post my proposal here. (Where, I’ll also be reporting my findings throughout the Fellowship)

I’d love to hear your comments and thoughts, please feel free to leave them here.

  1. This is marvellous. Congratulations Melanie.

    I very much like the reference to town halls and also blogging. Sharing your insights with your community of interest lets us all share in the benefit of your fellowship. So, we too can look forward to it.
