As the VP of Programs for the Society of Professional Journalists Florida Pro Chapter, I’ve run and hosted hands-on events geared at teaching journalists and student journalists applicable skills in fun, interactive settings. These events have been held at coffee shops, breweries, universities, high school campuses and college media conventions — and we can bring them to you.
Fake News Game Show
Created by the SPJ Florida pro chapter, the Fake News Game Show is an interactive trivia-style game centered around media literacy. The game was featured by Poynter for its creativity.
Teaching students interviewing skills by having them chat up the undead. More information.
Is the term “Islamic terrorist” accurate or offensive? An open discussion between Muslim community leaders and the journalists who cover them, over a Halal lunch. More information.
First Amendment Free Food Festival
A national event where students sign away their rights for an hour in exchange for a free meal.
A student publication shouldn’t have to pay for a critique. Students and pros mingle over a late night breakfast and talk all things journalism at this free event.
