Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

The Columbia Scholastic Press Association’s annual national convention will take place later this week in New York City, and we want to hear from the schools that will be there!

If your yearbook staff will be at CSPA, submit a post filling us in on the sights and sounds of the convention. The process is easy.

Just come to the Yearbook Blog and click the Submit a Post link in the right sidebar. Then, send us your name, email, post title and text. It’s just that simple.

    My second day began with an exciting session with Steve Kent on the use of font. The class was so entertaining that I stayed for his next one on Design and left with a new sense of how to make your own style and use magazines only for inspiration. I began making more friends today and interacting more in my sessions. Now, off to lunch…

    Definetely exciting. My afternoon classes consisted of a session on theme and some time at the swap shop. The class really gave me a new perception of theme, and an understading of its changing uses. I even had the oppurtunity to speak with the speaker, Rick Brooks, following the presentation and had a discussion about our theme ideas for next 2011, which put what we learned into perspective.
