American Journalism Review Features Boomer Reporting Project

The American Journalism Review has published a story about a new citizen journalism reporting program being overseen by the University of Maine Center on Aging to teach baby boomers journalism skills so they can report and blog about their community activities. Professional photographer Bill Kuykendall, a UMaine senior lecturer in new media and cooperating professor of communication and journalism, is serving as the project workshop director for the Maine Boomer Reporting Corps program. He said the program gives aging Mainers an opportunity to apply their knowledge of the environment, international relations, economy and other important issues to a novel method of bringing knowledge and perspective to the public realm.
