The workshop will be in Philadelphia and Shapiro’s email added that “registration is open to reporters, editors, photographers, producers and news managers from the mid-Atlantic region (New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland and Washington D.C.) with a limited number of places available for journalists from outside the region.”
