This year’s dates are Sept. 25-30. 

The McCormick Foun­da­­tion pays all expenses, including round-trip airfare to Kansas City, ground transportation, lodging and meals.

All information provided at the workshop is on the record.

The workshop offers opportunities for daily stories as well as features.
