The Charlotte Arts Journalism Alliance is inviting local freelancers and budding writers to its inaugural arts journalism conference.
CAJA is a collaboration of UNC Charlotte and five major media players: The Charlotte Observer, Qcitymetro.com, WCNC-TV, public radio station WFAE, and online civic and cultural magazine Charlotte Viewpoint. The alliance’s goal is to create more arts journalism.
The conference, intended to help launch writers in arts journalism, is from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Jan. 12 at the UNC Charlotte Center City building in uptown. The cost is $35 for the general public and $15 for students.
