The SPJ Western WA Pro Chapter has a lot going on in February. Sign up now for the first two highlights below and save the date for the rest!
Weâ€™ve launched the 2015 SPJ Northwest Excellence in Journalism contest! Send us your best work from last year! Deadline is Feb. 15. Weâ€™re also in search of judges to volunteer to read entries from another SPJ chapterâ€™s regional contest, so please sign up for that if you can.
Our first continuing education event is at UW on Feb. 11: â€œJ-School in a Night.â€ Reserve your spot. J-School In a Night has something for everyone. Attendees can choose 3 out of 4 offered sessions on ethics, story structure, photography and pitching taught by working journalists across a variety of media channels and expertise including newspapers, radio, magazines and lifestyle websites. Find out more about it on the SPJ Western WA Pro Chapter blog.
And March 10, weâ€™ll have another continuing education event at The Seattle Times that will cover storytelling. Weâ€™re calling this â€œLight my fire.â€
Save the date! On April 21, weâ€™ll head down to the Machine House Brewery for current news trivia night with â€œJeopardyâ€ champion Glenn Fleishman as our emcee!
