The NPR Story Lab is a three-day audio storytelling training for member-station teams and independent producers from across the nation at NPR HQ. The workshop has selected two audio projects that will receive editorial support and $10,000 in funding to launch pilot episodes of their podcasts and create broadcast segments for NPR newsmagazines. “Midnight Oil,” from Alaska Public Media, explores the Trans-Alaska pipeline’s drastic effects on the state. “Inter(Nation)al” is a multi-platform series that tells the story of America’s past and present through the lens of treaties between Native Americans and the U.S. government.
“We’re thrilled to be supporting talented storytellers and journalists in creating original work that will benefit local communities and also contribute important stories to our national news programs,” said Anya Grundmann, NPR Vice President for Programming and Audience Development.
The next Story Lab Workshop will be held in Spring 2018.
