Heading to Hollywood: ACP College Journalism Convention

Beginning today, the college media universe converges on Hollywood for the annual Associated Collegiate Press (ACP) National College Journalism Convention. I’ll be taking part in three sessions– focused on sex, online audience building, and investigative journalism.  Please stop by the Renaissance Hollywood Hotel and say hello!

Sex, Sex, SEX!: Covering campus love, lust, and every kink in between

Saturday, March 5th, 1:30 – 2:35 p.m., Hollywood Ballroom

Sex. It’s more popular in college than ever— in column form. College newspaper sex columns have helped revolutionize student journalism and defined a new sexual generation. This session— led by the author of Sex and the University, a book on the student sex-column movement— will briefly share the story of these columns and offer advice to students and advisers considering launching a sex or dating feature of their own. Tips will include an outline of hurdles to avoid, topics to tackle, and formats to take. Carrie Bradshaw will make anappearance (via PowerPoint).
