New opportunities follow ICFJ Anywhere course for religion writer

Menachem Wecker was already a busy freelancer when he took the ICFJ Anywhere course, International Coverage of Religion, in the spring of 2009. So he was solid on the basics of his chosen specialty. But religion is a big and complicated topic, and Wecker wondered what he didn’t know. The course filled some gaps for him – with discussions ranging from jihad to enforced moralities to covering minority religions. Now he is busier than ever, writing for newspapers, religion publications, and a blog on art and religion.
