Media Now at Drake University
(Des Moines, Iowa), July 6-9

If in-person training is what you’re looking for we’d love to have you join us at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa, July 6-9, 2022, for our four-day bootcamp to help take your journalism skills to the next level.

In our high-energy camp, students and advisers choose a single-track to immerse themselves in the four days. You get to participate in hands-on projects and showcase them in a campus-wide awards ceremony to cap off our time together. It’s an awesome opportunity to deep dive into that area of interest and hone your skills, all while you learn from some of the best advisers, college professors and media professionals in the country. No matter what level you arrive with, we’ll push you, encourage and train you to move to the next.

If you live in the St. Louis area or can get there, there’s even a bus option to help get you there.

If that’s not motivation enough to join us at Drake University, you’ll leave camp with a wardrobe of sweet Media Now shirts, you’ll likely get to meet and get your photo taken with Drake’s Bulldog mascot Griff, and Drake University usually has a really, really nice parting gift for all campers.

Classes include:

Editorial Leadership, Writing Essentials and Advanced, Photography Essentials and Advanced, Video Broadcasting, Design, Yearbook, Political Communication, Sports Journalism, Podcasting and Advising Publications. School Newspapers Online (SNO) will also be there to help staffs with their online news sites.
