Dear friends of community journalism,
Chris Waddle and the folks at the University of Alabama/Anniston Star are putting on a terrific conference in early February that you all need to know about. It's titled, THE EMERGING MIND OF COMMUNITY JOURNALISM. Our own Peggy Kuhr is among the conference speakers. Here's the blurb from Chris. Hope to see you there!
We'd like professional and academic journalists to know about a new resource available to them. We are the Teaching Newspaper -- the Knight Community Journalism Fellows -- a master's degree program of the University of Alabama inside The Anniston Star.
We are holding a National Conference on Community Journalism in Anniston, Feb. 8-9, with a remarkable assembly of speakers and panelists in a collegial journalism setting.
While at the conference, teachers and practitioners of journalism will hear about the Teaching Newspaper's degree program starting in the next academic year. We hope they want to recommend students to us.
To register for the conference, to learn more about the program and to peek inside the Teaching Newspaper, please go to www.comj.ua.edu or call the program in Anniston, 256-235-3590, or write: The Teaching Newspaper, Box 125, Anniston, AL 36202.
