I’ve only done one Poynter Institute workshop, almost three years ago now, and it was awesome. Easily one of the best I’d ever been to. They run a lot of things for professionals, and some for academics, but here’s one for the students:
Poynter’s 2010 College Fellowship (May 16-28) is an intensive, two-week program in which students work in a classroom and on a beat to report and produce stories about the local community. They will have countless opportunities for one-on-one coaching with Poynter faculty and professional journalists.
The Fellowship is open to college juniors, seniors, grad students and recent graduates interested in all forms of journalism. The deadline for applications is Monday, March 1.
Get your stuff together, that would be a great one to attend.
