Agenda updates: audience-first storytelling and newsletters

At Journalism.co.uk, we are making the final preparations for our next newsrewired digital journalism event, taking place on 10-11 July in London.

Our training day on 10 July will give delegates the change to perfect one of two skills: 360-degree video, or Instagram storytelling.

The conference on 11 July will bring together speakers and delegates from organisations leading in the media ecosystem to discuss the latest trends and techniques in digital journalism.

We are pleased to announce two new additions to the programme.
