Incorporated into The Register Citizen News Cafe at 59 Field Street in Torrington, Connecticut, is a Community Media Lab.
Its mission is to encourage, support and train citizen journalists and bloggers to write about their neighborhoods, their causes, their niche interests.
The Register Citizen Community Media Lab provides both computer work stations for local bloggers and free public wifi Internet access. They can come in, file an update to their site, research a topic in The Register Citizen’s archives, and get help from our newsroom staff editing a video, or advice on journalism ethics or how to track down information for a story.
Community Media Lab partners’ blogs will be featured on The Register Citizen’s website, a great source of referral traffic. And they are invited to work with newsroom staff on story projects and to participate in our daily news meetings.
For more information on how to participate in the Community Media Lab, contact Community Engagement Editor Kaitlyn Yeager at email@example.com, 860-489-3121, ext. 345, or stop by and see it for yourself!
