NewsTrain Marks 10th Anniversary With First Stop in Springfield
NewsTrain, the signature on-site journalism training program of the Associated Press Media Editors, will make its first stop in its 10th anniversary year in Springfield, Ill.
Workshops are being planned for April 29 and 30 at the Prairie Capital Convention Center in Downtown Springfield. The APME-funded program makes four stops per year in the United States and Canada.
Trainer Michael Roberts oversees NewsTrain and plans the workshops based on a needs assessment from a committee of journalists in the region of the host city. Programs are aimed at all levels of newsroom editors and managers, reporters, copy editors, visual journalists and online producers. College journalism educators and student journalist are also welcome.
Other workshops are being planned later this year in Seattle and Colorado.
The cost is $75 for the two days of training. Details are being worked out for hotel stays in downtown Springfield. We'll post registration details when we have them.
