Oregon News Incubator (ONI) Work Party
Java Nation

The best way to get involved with the Oregon News Incubator is to come to one of our mobile work parties.

What’s a work party? Each of the ONI work parties is an informal co-working opportunity for journalists to convene in a comfortable space to work in parallel, brainstorm ideas, share resources, etc. Think of them as roving newsrooms. They’re not just for writers – photographers, broadcasters and multimedia journalists can come to network, partner on projects or work alongside other reporters. We often even have “news meetings” to discuss story ideas, potential sources and possible markets. In addition to refining story ideas, they also offer a chance to identify participants with similar interests or potential collaborators for projects. Editors: We’d love to put you in touch with freelancers; meanwhile, please feel free to point freelancers you work with in our direction.
