Digital Journal will host a series of Global Editorial Meetings in July, inviting the public to take part in the news creation process (see the original announcement, posted here).
In the Global Editorial Meetings, Digital Journal staff members and editors will chat live with readers, journalists, bloggers, photographers and passionate news junkies about important stories and topics from their city, province/state or country. Conversation will focus on multiple geographies and news verticals, and particular attention will be focused on stories the public believes are being under-reported.
After these Global Editorial Meetings are complete, Digital Journal will use feedback and input to assign stories to thousands of Digital Journalists around the world. The company will use its Assignments technology to create, track and organize a massive editorial project to provide the public with content it wants.
To see a full list of upcoming meetings, check out the Global Editorial Meetings Group.
