The workshop is now entering its fourth year, and is expanding rapidly. From a start of 20 local students, the program had 70 students last year, from many states, as well as five different countries. This year is poised to have more applicants than ever.
Staff includes Joe Bergantino, a former I-Team reporter and lead investigator for WBZ in Boston, and Maggie Mulvihill, a former Nieman Fellow at Harvard University.
Students will learn investigative reporting techniques while creating their own pieces for potential publication. Past students have gone on to major in journalism at some of the best journalism schools in the country.
