60 minute mentorship session via Google Meet
Ruxandra has availability on Tuesdays from 1pm-4pm PT, Thursdays from 12pm-3pm PT and Fridays from 1pm - 4pm PT as of January 2022.
Ruxandra has mastered the craft of telling audio stories both nationally and abroad. She is a supportive and resourceful mentor for those looking to strengthen their approach to freelance journalism, negotiating contracts, finding funding, navigating collaborations, and ethics in storytelling. She is particularly interested in supporting storytellers who come from other disciplines or non-traditional backgrounds and who have unconventional ideas and artistic approaches to audio. She’d love to support POC producers and Spanish-speaking/producing ones, too.
