This week, Washington D.C. is playing host to the Associated Collegiate Press/College Media Advisers annual conference.
I will be speaking at this conference on Thursday. This is, of course, the perfect time for a post about the state of journalism education.
But not today. I’ll try to post that blog later this week.
Today, I want to send out an invitation to any students who are going to be in DC for this conference and who would like to spend a couple of hours seeing the Washingtonpost.Newsweek Interactive offices and talk about journalism with a dork from Kansas.
If time permits, we also might head across the river to see The Washington Post newsroom, as well.
I’m guessing only about two or three people will take me up on this invitation, but just in case more do, we could probably only have about 10-15 folks visit us. I want it to be a small enough group that we can actually have some conversations.
Depending on how my schedule pans out for the rest of the week, we might be able to do this a couple of times. I am for sure going to meet with some folks from Appalachian State University on Friday morning, which is likely when this invite would be extended to others. I might also have some time on Wednesday afternoon.
If this sounds interesting, please send me an e-mail.
