The 70th-annual California Scholastic Press Association journalism workshop kicked off Monday morning with students meeting each other and their instructors and completing their initial assignment.
The workshop, traditionally held on the campus of Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, is an online-only event for a second consecutive year because of COVID-19 safety protocols, but the move online has allowed CSPA to expand its reach, and this year’s class includes students from four countries.
Over these five days, our students will learn the fundamentals of journalism and also have the opportunity to interact with professionals from a wide range of backgrounds, including print journalism, broadcast, online media, photojournalism and public relations.
The event will conclude on Friday, with a presentation from award-winning former Orange County Register reporter Larry Welborn, plus a discussion with Brittny Mejia of the Los Angeles Times and Soumya Karlamangla of The New York Times.
