Just Curious


What is ‘Just Curious’?


‘Just Curious’ is the name of a series that journalism students at Mercer University’s Center for Collaborative Journalism contribute to during semester long practicum placements with Engage CCJ, GPB Macon, The Macon Telegraph and 13WMAZ . The community submits questions and student reporters investigate. The project is powered by the Hearken tool, which encourages journalists to write stories that their audience actually wants to hear.

How does it work?


1. Questions come from the community.

2. You vote for your favorites.

3. CCJ students investigate and post updates in real time.

4. Followers help shape the investigation.

5. We discover the answers together!


Got a question about Macon, the region, or the people who live here? Is there anything you’ve always wondered about, found peculiar or downright confusing? Submit your question and we will work hard to find the answer.
