Scholastic journalism advisers and friends gathered at the Portland UO Turnbull Center Wednesday evening to kick off the new year at a party hosted by Northwest Scholastic Press and the UO School of Journalism and Communication. Advisers filled their bags with classroom swag including 45 words buttons and posters, rubber duckies, UO frisbees, pencils — and that didn’t include the drawing for a UO keyboard, coffee mugs, bags and more. The next major event will be in Eugene on Wednesday, Oct. 24 when students, teachers and professional journalists gather for the annual Fall Press Day.

The Northwest Scholastic Press Association and the University of Oregon School of Journalism and Communication invites your students to Fall Press Day, October 24, 7:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m., at the EMU in Eugene. This year’s theme is “See It Differently.”

Often, student media advisers ask young journalists to identify interesting topics to report on. The adviser sends the student out into the world hoping that the student returns with an awesome story to tell. More often than not, the student returns with something that falls a bit short of the adviser’s expectation. The adviser then realizes that part of the “journalistic metamorphosis” students must go through involves a revolution of how they view their school, their community, and their world. The young journalist must put on a new set of lenses, refocus, and “see it differently.”

Fall Press Day 2012 will include workshops, panel discussions, and forum topics on:
• News writing
• Obtaining internships
• Fact finding and checking
• Editorial cartooning
• Editorial writing
• Online reporting and writing
• Interviewing
• Advertising
• Photography
• Copyediting
• Layout and design (web and print)
• First Amendment
• Writing reviews
• Freedom of Information Act
• Column writing
• New media

We look forward to seeing you!
