Region 10 Spring Conference: The Working Press

Members of the SPJ Student Chapter at Pacific Lutheran University recreated the Working Press for this weekend’s SPJ conference. Inviting students from around the region to participate, the Working Press site includes session recaps, speaker handouts, photos, an agenda, list of Mark of  Excellence Award winners and more. If you missed the conference, or if you attended and want to see more on sessions you missed, check it out. It is a great site with lots of useful information.

Well done, PLU!
