With summer almost here, a yearbook workshop makes perfect sense

Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

Isn’t it summer yet? I guess I assumed that it was, due to the blitz of Iron Man 2 media I’ve been seeing everywhere. After all, to me, blockbuster action movies mean summer.

For your yearbook staff, summer can be a time to relax, recharge and reflect to get ready for next year. Unfortunately, that’s not all, though. There is work to be done – theme and cover ideas, new staff getting to know each other. And a great place to accomplish a lot of these things is at a summer workshop.

Walsworth’s Jamie Chambers recently wrote an article over in the Idea File about how a few days at a summer workshop getting your staff to “live, eat and drink” yearbook can do wonders in getting organized and ready for next year. Be sure to take a look.

Walsworth has workshops all summer, in locations all over the country. Head over to Workshop Central and take a look at the monthly listings to see if there’s one you might want to attend.
