Meet the Voices class of 2018
We are proud to announce the students and faculty for Voices 2018. Voices has selected 17 student journalists nationally. Our students will receive hands-on training and mentorship from 11 professional journalists selected as faculty members.
In May, students and faculty will begin work on collaborative long-form reporting projects. Students will attend remote trainings from eight professionals from across the industry, including sessions on data reporting, audience development and more.
The program will culminate with the AAJA National Convention in Houston from August 6 – 11, where students will present their collaborative reporting projects to the AAJA membership on Friday, Aug. 11 at 3:30 p.m.
We look forward to seeing you in Houston.
