Sign Up for Great Journalism Seminar

Don't miss a great opportunity to learn about journalism and hang out with the pros next Saturday, Oct. 25, at the University of Oregon in Eugene.

The Society of Professional Journalists is hosting "Building a Better Journalist," which will feature keynote speaker Stephen Engelberg, managing editor of the non-profit investigative newsroom ProPublica, and Les Zaitz, one of Oregon's top investigative reporters. Other topics include blogging, covering politics, interviewing, and reporting for multimedia.

The gathering begins with registration at 8 a.m. at the University of Oregon's School of Journalism and Communication, and concludes with a social hour at 5:30 p.m. Some of the state's top journalists will be leading the various sessions. Best of all, students pay only $10!
