Media Training Day-Presented by the Free Press

Media Training Day-Presented by the Free Press

The Free Press wants you to try your hand at breaking the news. Join us for a  
day when we stage a mock emergency on campus this April and cover the news  
with us.

No experience is necessary for participation. This will be a chance for  
students to learn new skills in a hands-on way. The goal is that students,  
along with The Free Press staff, practice the skills necessary for getting  
the news out under pressure.

The event will be free and open to all students. USM, local high school and  
neighboring college students are encouraged to register.

Here’s how it will work: groups of the student journalists will gather in  
the “newsroom,” and a call will come in. There will be an emergency on  
campus, and they will have a relatively short period of time in which they  
can interview, report, and take pictures and video.

Don't have any experience? Don't worry. We'll be there to help.

In the end, there will be a constructive critique in which a panel of local  
media professionals will talk about each group’s work and select a  
winner.The winning group will receive a prize, courtesy of The Free Press.
