Day One of Sports Backpack Journalism

Summer is here and that means it’s time for MCM’s Summer Backpack Journalism Academy! The first session began today and we have a great class of budding sports journalists.  This is the first time we are devoting a full session to sports and it is thrilling! I am so excited to see how their sports stories turn out. They have a lot of great ideas. I love the fact that they were already familiar with sports news and had an idea of what they wanted to cover. The conversations were great. We even had a visit from Brandy Simms, sports reporter for the Sentinel. He had a lot of great tips and information for our newest sports journalists.  All in all, it was a wonderful first day and I cannot wait to see what tomorrow brings.

Stay tuned for updates throughout the summer and there are still spaces available for the Backpack Journalism Academy session that begins on July 14. You can click HERE to register and find out more.
