Detroit StoryMakers

WDET is committed to increasing the diversity of local voices that are shaping the narrative about our city and region.

The Detroit StoryMakers initiative empowers local storytellers in bringing Detroit's stories to life by providing:

  • training to individuals who are interested in learning how to craft stories
  • resources and platforms for multimedia artists, journalists, and producers to share their stories with a wider audience
  • support for new community storytelling initiatives
