JAWS has cooked up an amazing weekend of inspiring speakers, valuable training and educational panels — the only ingredient left to add is YOU!

Sign up for three days of professional development, networking and mentoring in a unique setting. We’ll be taking advantage of the special features at the Essex, which means lots of yummy offerings to go with this power packed program.

CAMP highlights:

• Keynote speaker on Saturday night will be Jill Abramson, executive editor of the New York Times!

• Saturday Legacy Luncheon honoring JAWS trailblazers Joan Cook, Eileen Shanahan and Kay Mills. Our guest speaker will be Madeleine M. Kunin, the first and only woman to serve as governor of Vermont.

• The Fine Art of the Interview: Turning story subjects into storytellers

• Get there by noon on Friday, Oct. 25 and learn about food writing for magazines, cookbooks & websites and everything you need to know about food policy

• A Date with Data: Liberating government data and using it to tell sexy stories

• Working Without a Net – how to copy edit yourself

• Visual Storytelling: How to listen and watch to create compelling narrative with pictures and sound

• Affordable Care Act and How to Cover It

We will also have sessions on job search strategies, funding for your dream journalism project, publishing an eBook, how to be a better manager and, of course, some great tech training on the latest with LinkedIn, Google and Tableau. The frosting on this cake is free time to enjoy the beauty of Vermont in the fall and catch up with old friends while making new ones.
