Last week we announced the agenda for our next newsrewired event, which is taking place on 22-23 November at Reuters, in Canary Wharf, London.

Through a mix of panel discussions, workshops and spotlight talks, delegates will have the chance to explore topics such as editorial collaboration, storytelling for mobile and open-source tools for newsrooms, and bring back practical learnings to their organisations.

Today, Journalism.co.uk is happy to announce four more speakers who will be joining us on the day, from outlets including Quartz, The Economist, and Swedish Radio.

Tickets for newsrewired on 22 November are still available, and cost £180+VAT. Other sessions at the event include workshops on open-source tools for newsrooms and graphic novel journalism, as well as a spotlight talk about the print and digital strategy of Monocle magazine. Check out the agenda and who else will be speaking, and keep your eyes peeled for our keynote announcement soon!

How can you better create stories for mobile audiences? When would collaborations benefit your organisation, and how can you build a workflow suitable for you and your partners? How are media organisations using virtual reality and should you invest in it too? Can graphic novels be used in journalism?

Journalism.co.uk is pleased to announce the agenda for the day.

We are still working on confirming a few sessions and speakers, so some things may change slightly before 22 November, but register now to avoid missing out on tickets as places are going fast.
