Join us for a meetup that's part social, part networking and part educational.
And let's not bury the lede: For those of us who are over 21, there will be free beer served.
But there's more! NewsWorks (http://www.newsworks.org) will offer a look under the hood at their (almost) first year. They'll share what they've learned about partnering, newsroom integration, community engagement and multimedia storytelling. There might even be a sneak peek at what Year Two will bring, and you'll have a chance to tell them your ideas for what they could do better.
We invite writers, editors, photographers, producers, technologists, students and all with an interest in the production of news for digital presentation. We plan to have monthly events at a variety of sites in the area.
Please RSVP so we have an accurate count for beverages and food. Questions? You can follow co-organizers Daniel Victor (http://twitter.com/bydanielvictor), Amy Fiscus (http://twitter.com/amyfiscus) and Christopher Wink (http://twitter.com/christopherwink) on Twitter, or join the ONA Philly Facebook group (http://www.facebook.com/groups/210065215697378/). And please help us spread the word to other online journalists (for those on Twitter, we'll use the #ONAPhilly hashtag).
UPDATE: Big thanks to Boxcar Brewing Company (http://www.boxcarbrewingcompany.com/) (@boxcarbrewery) for supplying the beer, Trolley Car Diner (http://www.trolleycardiner.com/) (Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/trolleycardiner)) for wraps, and Center City Soft Pretzel Co.
