No-Fear Guide to Multimedia Skills
I will be at the National Writers Workshop in Wichita, Kansas, on May 19. I’ll be doing a 90-minute presentation called “The No-Fear Guide to Multimedia Skills.” Since this is a writers workshop, my session is going to be very much about how you can do it right now: audio, Soundslides, video.
But more interesting to me is the last-minute addition of Robert Bowman, editor in chief of the Virginia Tech Collegiate Times (he was one of two managing editors until last week). He will be interviewed on Saturday by Joe Hight, president of the Executive Committee of the Dart Center for Journalism and Trauma and managing editor of The Oklahoman (Oklahoma City).
This is a pretty inexpensive training opportunity: $75 for professionals and $40 for students. The professional rate will go up to $85 after May 11. And there are student scholarships! So if you live in the middle of the U.S., try to join us. Kevin McGrath, the assistant metro editor/nights at The Wichita Eagle, has put together a great lineup of speakers for two days (see the Wichita NWW page for a complete list).
National Writers Workshops are held at several locations year-round across the U.S.
