Start thinking about next year with the latest issue of Idea File

Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

The spring 2017 issue of Idea File magazine is here!

This edition is all about looking ahead and getting ready for next year. You can read the entire issue in our Idea File gallery.

Be sure to look at the features on getting your next staff trained at a spring workshop and how you can use a critique service to improve your yearbook.

Arkansas adviser Andrew Young, who was recently chosen a 2017 Rising Star by JEA, wrote an outstanding piece on how he gets his middle school yearbookers acquainted with what will be expected of them in the high school journalism programs.

In the latest “Ask Mike” column from Walsworth Yearbooks Journalism Specialist Mike Taylor, CJE, you can find out if you are using the right fonts.

And as always, there’s a new set of selections from this issue that have been added to our Caught Our Eye gallery.

Enjoy all of this and much more, and good luck springing into fall!
