Walsworth speakers will add variety to the JEA/NSPA program

Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

The JEA/NSPA National High School Journalism Convention will be providing yearbook staffs with the ultimate journalism learning experience this week in Minneapolis, and Walsworth will be contributing to that experience with an extensive list of speakers.

Sessions with Walsworth speakers will cover everything from learning how to sell more yearbooks and ads, to writing better copy, to staff management and much more.

Walsworth’s new Journalism Specialist Mike Taylor, a respected and experienced workshop and convention instructor, will be teaching a session called “It only takes a minute” on Saturday afternoon at 2:30 p.m., full of advice on how advisers can keep staff members motivated and ready to work.

You can get a look at the sessions being taught by Walsworth speakers, as well as every session on the convention schedule, by flipping through this online version of the convention program.

There are also downloadable versions of the program available at the JEA website.
