Share this event:

The Society of Professional Journalists invites you to spend a day with reporters, photographers, editors and students from all different media outlets - and to live, learn and share your journalistic experience.

This is also the day where we give out the Mark of Excellence Awards to journalism students from all over Region 10 - so don't miss the lunch celebration.

Programming starts at 9 a.m. and runs through 5 p.m. in one-hour increments - we are still finalizing some speakers, but here's a taste of what we have planned for you:

How to cover news on tribal lands - a panel of reporters, editors and tribal spokes people will help you do a better job.

Do you have what it takes to be a freelancer? Kent-based freelance writer Dana Neuts shares her freelance career, including the good, the bad and the ugly. Pick up survival tips or kick start a new career.

Everybody wants to write a book - published authors Sherry Jones and Jim Kershner talk about how they transitioned from being reporters to published authors.

Crunching data in smaller markets - The Skagit Valley Herald's Kate Martin shows you how to do computer assisted reporting while utilizing databases in a small market. She will share examples, including a fun project on roadkill.

Convergence, how TV and newspapers can work together - staff from KHQ-TV and The Spokesman-Review frankly share tales from their one-year collaboration on KHQ's online news breaks.

You already have the technology for better reporting -  Tri-City Herald assistant managing editor Jim Van Nostrand shows you how to use your cellphone and other common gadgets to aid your daily reporting.

Also - show and tell for students: bring your clips and tapes and let's take a look; social media profile critiques for students and professionals.

More to come - keep checking for updates.
