Quiz a pro – for free

It won’t cost a penny to pick the brain of a pro at NOLA13.

When you arrive, visit the NOLA13 trade show (in Preservation Hall) to sign up for a 20-minute slot with one of our Professionals in Residence. We’re still finalizing the schedule, but we’ve already lined up PIRs from CNN, The Washington Post, Society for News Design, the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, a number of TV and public-radio stations, electronic media, newspapers and more.

You can bring your resume or portfolio for review. You can ask advice on how to land the job you want. Talk about the pro’s job or career path. Or discuss newsroom problems, technical questions — just about anything. We’re giving you 20 minutes to ask questions and seek insight from a pro in your field.

Slots are likely to go fast, so find the PIR tables in Preservation Hall on Oct. 24 and reserve yours.

Brainstorm and broadcast at NOLA13

Brainstorm for fame and prizes, hang out with First Amendment legend Mary Beth Tinker and broadcast live on radio and TV from the National College Media Convention. All these special events will be featured at NOLA13, Oct. 23-27 in New Orleans. See you there!

Watch as the Sun Never Sets

At the National College Media Convention in New Orleans, students can see “The Sun Never Sets,” a documentary of one feisty weekly newspaper that breaks news regularly and is constantly provocative. It’s not your father’s weekly newspaper. And you can meet the director and one of the reporters, too.

Way down yonder in New Orleans

Whether you ride the City of New Orleans, board the Proud Mary riverboat, fly, take a bus, drive, hitch a ride or go marching in just like the saints, New Orleans is the place to be Oct. 23-27.

Student journalists and aspiring professional media members will converge on the National College Media Convention in The Big Easy this fall and NOLA13, as it’s called, promises to be a humdinger of an educational experience, not to mention a good time.

College Media Association and the Associated Collegiate Press have planned 350 journalism/media sessions for students, including fantastic keynotes and special events.

Click the link above to go to the website to see all the details. Also, follow @collegemedia13 on your Twitter account and include in your tweets #collegemedia13.

For Doane students who want to attend, the Journalism and Media Department will pick up your registration and ground transportation. Air fare, hotel room and food are your responsibility. Please let me know by Sept. 13 whether you intend to attend.

Once the travel plans are made, sit back to relax and think about that Cajun/Creole cooking. You may even start humming, “Jambalaya and a crawfish pie and filet gumbo … “
