Envision the future of journalism.

The Fall Journalism Conference is a two-day virtual event for high school journalists with all levels of experience. Participants will attend seminars on different aspects of journalism led by our editors and executives and panels on how to incorporate journalism experiences into college applications. The conference provides participants with the opportunity to learn from and interact with experienced college journalists. By working with our editors as well as fellow attendees, all participants will improve their skills and strengthen their interest in journalism, coming up with new ideas that they can then implement in their own papers. We look forward to meeting you on Saturday and Sunday, November 14th and 15th, 2020!

Central to our fall conference is innovation in journalism; our seminar offerings, in addition to teaching techniques on how to improve journalistic skills, will focus on how to stay ahead in this rapidly changing field and how to advance newspaper organizations as a whole. Examples of innovation in high-school journalism covered by our seminars include online-only content, long-form journalism, harnessing social media, producing videos, online strategy, blogs, and alternative revenue streams beyond print advertising.
