Are you a journalist or other news media professional, a freelancer, a journalism student, or a journalism educator?​

YOU'RE INVITED TO JOIN THE COLORADO NEWS COLLABORATIVE

COLab, the Colorado News Collaborative, is a network of 180+ news organizations and 350+ journalists and other news media professionals, freelancers, journalism students, and journalism educators across Colorado who are working together to strengthen journalism in our state.

Think of COLab as a statewide media resource hub and ideas lab that serves all Coloradans by strengthening high-quality local journalism, supporting civic engagement, and ensuring public accountability. We work together on stories that none of us could report alone, and COLab provides resources and training to strengthen the individuals and the outlets that support this work.

As a journalist, other news media professional, freelancer, journalism student, or journalism educator in Colorado, you are eligible to participate.

As a COLab partner, you will:

  • Receive frequent emails from COLab with information and tips on reporting, revenue, reach and other resources
  • Be welcome to participate in monthly COLab Partner Meetings. 
    • Watch for more news from us about a revamped approach to these meetings starting in January 2024. We'll be tailoring monthly gatherings (virtual and sometimes in-person) for sharing specific skills and information.
  • Have access to the COLab Network Slack Workspace with a #general planning/sharing channel, as well as channels of interest, including: diversity, equity, inclusion; funding, resources, and opportunities; journalism jobs in Colorado; and more.
  • Be considered for access to AP StoryShare, a news-sharing and collaboration platform, built with support from the Google News Initiative. COLab newsrooms use the site to share their work, use stories from other outlets around the state, pool resources, and avoid duplication of effort. Note: Media liability insurance is required for access to this platform. 

We Invite you to join our community. It is simple – and free!
