CMN wants you to get paid.
That’s why we’ve developed specific courses designed to build on what you learned in college, with a focus on developing and refining a set of skills that will land paying jobs and stand out from the competition. If you love writing, the world of digital and social media, and want to get paid to so something you love, our courses can help make it happen.
We emphasize consistent, helpful feedback, skill development in areas that will make a difference in the ultra-competitive world of digital media, and frequent, open communication.
We’re focused on one mission: Building the best education and training community for 21st Century digital journalists. One that — in the era of Fake News, increasing public suspicion, and shrinking revenue — ensures a better outcome for everyone.
