Tomorrow, three editors and two reporters from the University of Portland’s student-run newspaper, The Beacon, head to Phoenix for the Associated Collegiate Press National Journalism Convention. Friday through Sunday, they will attend journalism workshops covering a variety of topics including reporting, editing, covering tragedy and sensitive issues, ethics, newspaper design, new media, college issues, managing student employees and more.
It should be especially fun and enriching to mingle and share stories with hundreds of other collegiate journalists from across the country.
The attendees- Andy, Rosemary, Aaron, Hannah and Roya will chronicle their experiences and lessons on this blog daily. ‘Should be an adventure! – Nancy Copic, Ass’t Director for Student Media, University of Portland
