    Art/Event Blogging: Summer on Southport | Sunday, July 13  – 1PM

    This session is great for those who are looking to sharpen their interviewing/question skills.  We’ll check out the street art fair and ask the artists about their products for mini interviews.  Plus, I’ll share some easy tips for great interviews.  Don’t forget a camera for this event.

    Goal:  Finding great story ideas by asking questions.  Looking for feature story ideas.

    Cost:  $7 for workshop; $5 suggested donation for entry to festival.

    About the Chicago Summer Field Blogging Workshop:

    Head out with us to explore Chicago while learning some great tactics to better blogging. Our Summer Field Blogging Series is open to bloggers at all levels and is a great way to ask questions and network with other area bloggers. Purchase a season pass and save!

    We recommend you have a WordPress Blog ready for each session (Either or a self-hosted version).  If you already have an established blog, you’re welcome to incorporate our topic ideas into your existing blog or you might want to create a free blog on to just use for the series.   At the end of the summer, we will hold a group sharing session to showcase our summer blogs and to again spark some great ideas.  (Details to come later in the summer on this).

    Recommended Items to bring:

    - A Reporter’s Notebook
    - A Smartphone (For a microphone/camera phone)
    - A Camera (if not using smartphone)
    - A pen.
    - A little spending cash

    I have tried to schedule all events within the city where public transportation is available and that had either no cost or low cost to enter.  If there’s expected costs, I will try to communicate that before we go.  All classes are on a first-come, first serve basis – Season Pass holders have guaranteed entry.
