Monday, April 19, 2010, 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
The New York Times is pleased to announce a full-day workshop hosted by The New York Times for student newspaper editors who attend colleges and universities that are partners with the newspaper.
The meeting will be held in New York City at the Times at 620 Eighth Avenue. Lunch will be provided. Students should arrive at the Times no later than 9:45 a.m. to check in.
Please note that due to heightened security at the Times, luggage is not permitted in the building—students must make alternative arrangements for storing their luggage. Backpacks are acceptable.
Student newspaper editors will have the opportunity to work directly with Times editors and reporters to explore the role of a newspaper in contemporary society, develop their journalistic skills, and discuss the various aspects of the newspaper from the newsroom and editorial to advertising. They will also participate in a workshop on the editing process. Finally, there will be time to interact with other student editors from around the country.
While it is preferred that student newspapers send the current editor and the incoming editor, campuses may invite the most appropriate student representatives. There is no registration fee, although participants must pay their own travel and accommodation expenses.
Reasonably priced hotels near the Times include: Comfort Inn Times Square, 305 W. 39th St.
(39th St. and 8th Ave.), 1-877-424-6423; and the Milford Plaza Hotel, 270 W. 45th St., 1-888-288-5700 or (212) 869-3600. Participants can find additional accommodations in New York City on www.hotels.com.
To register for the symposium, please send the name and email of the primary faculty or staff contact person, university affiliation, name of campus newspaper, and each student’s name, title, and email Anthony Nunziata at email@example.com.
