Want to know more twentysomething journalists / bloggers / photographers / critics / social media guruæ*? 

Then you've come to the right place! 

This group isn't about "networking." It's about getting to know the community of young journalists living, working, and covering New York City. Also drinking. Media people of all stripes are welcome! 

Also, ICMYI, we're kind of a big deal on Facebook.

How to use this group

• Join one of our monthly meetups, special events, or propose your own!

• Share your articles, what you're working on, get feedback

• Ask questions, get advice, talk about what's new in news

• Debate the merits of the Oxford Comma 

Who can join?

• Working journalists, freelancers, journalism students, or anyone who's interested in meeting other young journalists in NYC

The groups's cover image is from the Census DotMap, an awesome example of data-driven journalism by The Cooper Center's Demographics Research Group.

*Not actually the plural of 'guru'
