This event promises to present a lively discussion of creative research over lunch.

Meg Heckman, a graduate of the Northeastern School of Journalism, recently returned to campus to train the next generation of digital storyteller. She’s a faculty member in the Media Innovation program, which is designed to empower working journalists to become digital storytellers, and the faculty advisor for The Scope, the university’s student-led justice reporting lab. Her recent work has appeared in USA TodayThe Boston Globe, and the Columbia Journalism Review. Much of her journalism has focused on shedding light on the oft-overlooked role of women and other minorities in journalism, a topic that she first looked into for her master’s thesis and hopes to continue investigating now that’s she’s returned to Northeastern.
