2010 Urban Journalism Workshop Kicks Off

By Jennifer Janviere

Rose Richard address UJW students and their parents at an orientation meeting.This week, the Diederich College of Communication welcomes participants of the annual Urban Journalism Workshop. Some background information for our readers: the workshop is an intense multimedia journalism training program for high school students sponsored by the Dow Jones New Fund. It gives participants a chance to jump into the role of a journalist for two weeks, during which time they interview local news makers, write stories for the online publication, Urban Voice, and work with photo, audio and video equipment firsthand. It also gives students a great opportunity to prepare for a future career in journalism and a glimpse into what the profession entails.

Past UJW participants and instructors can attest to what a valuable experience the program is. And this year is particularly special, as it marks the 25th anniversary of Urban Journalism at Marquette.

Stay tuned for updates and photos from the workshop over the next two weeks. We’ll be posting on our Twitter, Facebook and Flickr accounts.
