From the Texas Center for Community Journalism:
Community newspapers are always looking for ways to stretch their budget and do more with less, and the Texas Center for Community Journalism is helping with a new one-day free workshop that looks at free or low-cost resources any newspaper can use.
It’s called Design on a Dime: No-cost (and low-cost) resources for the community newspaper. It will be presented on Thursday, June 6, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The instructor is Broc Sears, a popular TCCJ presenter and faculty member in the TCU Schieffer School of Journalism.
The workshop will present free and affordable resources for editors, publishers, photographers, website managers, designers, circulation managers and advertising staffers.
Both the tuition and lunch are free to participants, thanks to funding provided by the Texas Newspaper Foundation.
“We’re always looking for ideas for Texas community newspapers, and Broc Sears has come up with a whole day of them,” said TCCJ Director Tommy Thomason. “This is the type of workshop where participants won’t want to take a bathroom break for fear of missing some great free resource.”
Unlike TCCJ’s three-day workshops, this workshop will allow up to three participants from each newspaper.
