Masthead spring 2018 issue

If you are working on some kind of engagement project, whether the intent is to grow your audience, build trust or to advance some other strategic purpose, you're not alone.

In this new issue of Masthead
, we catch up with Andrew Rockway from Gather, a digital hub and resource repository for journalists working on engagement efforts. He answers our questions about the engagement community and what he sees as an emerging consensus about what engaged journalism even is.

You'll also want to read Elizabeth Souder's tips for hosting a robust Facebook group that keeps readers engaged around topics of interest.

We also have updates from colleagues who attended this month's Heritage Foundation discussions and annual briefing at the U.S. Department of State.

How is conservatism faring during the Donald Trump administration? What Supreme Court decisions
 should you be watching for before the summer recess? What should we expect to see from the president's June 12 meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un? Your colleagues share what they learned in last week's briefing.

- Jennifer, editorial writer at the Cayman Compass in George Town, Grand Cayman, and editor of Masthead
