Editors and staffers who enroll in one of the yearbook workshops will study theme development, copy preparation, editing, design and photography. Armed with specific plans for the upcoming yearbook, they prepare for their leadership roles.
Students will immerse themselves in working with printers, developing advertising and business practices, and understanding legal and ethical issues as applied to successful yearbooking. Sessions are personal, challenging and demanding. Much instruction is one-to-one.
Registration for summer workshops begins in early 2018.
