D loves the kids

So look at what popped into my e-mail this morning:

You are invited to lead a workshop and help high school journalists improve their skills at the third New York City High School Journalism Conference at Baruch College on Monday, May 7. The college is at E. 24th St. and Lexington Avenue.

Upwards of 200 students and their teachers will attend over 30 workshops conducted by journalists from The New York Times, Daily News, Newsday, New York 1, WINS, The Journal News, the South Asian Journalism Association, Columbia Journalism School and the Baruch College Journalism Programs.

Among the sessions at last fall's conference were: How to Get That Interview and What to do When You've Gotten It; Covering People Different From You; Localizing International News; Human Interest Feature Writing; and Media Law.The workshop slots are 9-9:55, 10-10:55, 11-11:55, and 12-12:55. Lunch is from 1 to 2 p.m. and you are invited. The conference will close with a panel on Breaking Into the Media, from 2-2:45.

You are welcome to stay for your session only, or for the entire program, and you may join the panel as well.If you would like to participate, please contact Jessica Siegel, director of the New York City High School Journalism Program at Baruch at Suggest a session to her that you'd like to present, or ask her to suggest one she thinks would benefit the students and their newspaper advisers.New York City high school journalism programs need your support.

This would be a great opportunity to give it, and I'm sure you'll find it an inspiring experience.

So I think Vandy and I are in. Are you?
