TOOLS FOR INSTAGRAM STORIES with Erin Brown

Learn to create compelling Instagram Stories that connect with viewers

Class meets Wednesday, March 6 from 6:30 to 8:30 pm

The cost for this workshop is $49; $39 early bird rate before February 1

Move over, Snapchat. Instagram Stories are now twice as popular than Snapchat with hundreds of millions of people using the feature everyday. It’s no wonder that news organizations and brands are hiring staff that can produce these short, punchy that connect with audiences.

But creating a compelling Instagram story takes more than being #blessed. This two-hour course will cover everything you need to know to take your visual storytelling to the next level — whether you're reporting from a war zone or just sharing your weekend brunch photos. In this hands-on workshop we'll tackle Instagram hacks and tricks, third party apps that will make your work stand out from the crowd, and a toolkit to up your game.

What to bring: Your smart phone with the Instagram app installed.

Level: Beginner to Intermediate
