Between Wednesday and Sunday last week the small Italian town of Perugia played host to the International Journalism Festival 2011 (#ijf11). I was there for some of it and I was lucky enough to see some fascinating panel sessions and workshops and meet some of the industry’s veterans, entrepreneurs and innovators.

This post is a round up of the news stories, blogs and audio I posted from the conference:

#ijf11: Follow the International Festival of Journalism

For the next three days Journalism.co.uk will be at the International Festival of Journalism in Perugia, attempting to cover some of the many talks, panel sessions and workshops taking place at venues across the city.

Almost all of the sessions at IJF are in Italian, with frenetic English translation (which often summarises), so live blogging/tweeting is tough. But keep an eye out for the #ijf11 hashtag on Journalism.co.uk’s news and blog pages for coverage.

WiFi withstanding, I will also be using our live Twitter account: @journalism_live

See the full agenda at this link.
