Heads Up: Conference for Minority Journalists of Faith


I’ll be part of a panel discussing blogs, and online writting at this year’s WJI Conference for Minority Journalists of Faith. You can see the full list of educators who will be presenting.

Professional and college journalists of faith will gather together for the annual World Journalism Institute weekend conference for minority journalists of faith. The conference will take place at The King’s College in midtown Manhattan.

This unique conference is designed to provide the Christian minority journalist with a brief introduction to the courses and networking of the World Journalism Institute.

Those who attend will be encouraged and challenged to integrate their Christian faith and journalism practice in a fashion appropriate for today’s mainstream newsrooms. The conference is an opportunity to meet other like-minded journalists from around the country to discuss issues facing the minority journalist of faith.

The conference will be composed of lectures, seminars, media tours and fellowship. The third annual Samuel R. Cornish Lecture will be given in honor of Cornish, who founded the first African-American newspaper.

Enrollment for the weekend conference is limited only by classroom size. Carpe diem!

Because of generous underwriting, a registration fee of $50 is the cost. World Journalism Institute will provide meals and some classroom materials.
