I am the program chair for the local Society of Professional Journalists chapter, based in Fort Worth. On Wednesday, May 9, we will be sponsoring a panel on religion writing to be moderated by Mary Gladstone. We are wondering whether you would be interested in serving as an expert on the panel. Topics to be discussed include:
-Pitfalls of covering religion; e.g., when is religion important to the story, how to cover stories about religion fairly, how to cover controversial issues surrounding religion,
-Finding diversity when covering religion: covering faiths that are not dominant in the U.S., including Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, etc.
-Ethics of covering religion: does it matter whether the reporter observes a particular religion? How do we balance coverage of different perspectives on religion?
The panel will take place from 6:30-8:30 p.m. on Wednesday May 9 at Joe T. Garcia’s in Fort Worth. Dinner will be included. If you are able to participate, please let me know and we will put you on the schedule!
Thanks for your time and attention,
