Title: Going Global: Covering the world of religion

Religion journalism isn’t just local: It’s global. But broadening your geographic scope can be challenging. Together representatives from the three news organizations that make up the Global Religion Journalism Initiative, funded by a grant from Lilly Endowment Inc., will reflect on how they – and other religion journalists – can find new and imaginative ways to go global with their work. Panelists from The Associated Press, The Conversation and Religion News Service also will discuss the practical, including how they have found in-country freelancers, pitched their skeptical editors and more. Come prepared to share your own experiences on navigating the international faith beat -- the panelists will welcome your insights.
