MARIO GARCIA: Writing, Editing and Designing for Mobile Consumption


America's Newspapers is making this webinar available to its members, as well as state press association members, at no cost.

Register right away.  Space is limited to the first 1,000 seats.


This webinar explains how writing, designing and editing news has fundamentally changed in this era when some 82% of news consumers are reading the news on mobile devices.

Mario Garcia, the acclaimed media designer, with more than 700 projects completed in 120 countries, will also explain the importance and new duties of content managers in keeping news updated, deciding how stories will be presented on different platforms and providing story continuity for mobile news consumers.

"Content managers are the new essential people in the newsroom," Garcia says.  "They are sort of traffic cops that keep content updated, decide how stories will be played on different platforms and provide story continuity in the mobile era."

All of these topics will be presented with a perspective on journalism in this era of COVID-19, and advice on how newspapers can extend their brands and optimize their marketing efforts through their vital coverage of the virus and its effect on their audience.
