Mix and mingle with forward-thinking journos at the first ONA-SPJ meetup!

The Western Washington chapter of SPJ has partnered with local leaders of the Online News Association to bring you News Next, a series of meetups designed to gather area journalists for good drinks, good company and what we hope will be great discussion of ideas that move journalism forward.

The first News Next is next Wednesday, and will kick off with a brief discussion by Mark Briggs of KING 5 and Monica Guzman of storytelling site Intersect on what news organizations can learn from startups.

Hope you can make it!
