How can aspiring journalists of today cope with campus journalism trends?
Divine Word College of Laoag got the answer for you. SHARE AND INSPIRE OTHERS FROM THE HEART!
“See the world, meet interesting people, and write about them,” This is what more than one hundred budding campus journalists and broadcasters of Pagudpud National High School (PNHS), Lanao National High School, Luzong National High School, and St. Jude High School were made to give meaning through a two-day seminar workshop conducted by the Editorial Board together with the adviser, Mr. Giovanni Rey Tabernero of the Williamite, the official student publication of the Divine Word College of Laoag on September 15 and 16, 2017 at the Pagudpud National High School. The VP for External and Alumni Affairs, and a former campus journalist Romana L. Bitancor joined the team and was tasked to set the pace of the seminar by sharing some basic principles sine-qua-non for all writers vis-à-vis the Journalists Creed by Walter Williams.
The topics discussed and the workshops conducted by the team include:
Sports Writing by Jhinofred Gaspar; Photojournalism by Jonathan Madela; Opinion Writing by Jeda Calventas; and News Writing by Rachelle Remigio
Editorial Writing and Cartooning by Jeda Calventas and Hale Tagata; Feature/Literary Writing by Jeda Calventas; Radio Broadcasting by Giovanni Rey Tabernero; and Page Layouting by Chino Guillermo.
Concluding the seminar-workshop was Jeda Calventas’s performance of spoken word poetry piece after which Mr. K.E of PNHS entertained everyone with his stand-up comedy piece “Chef.”
The top 10 writers in every category as a result of the workshops were awarded Certificates of Recognition to motivate the participants to keep on honing their journalistic skills.
Mr. Larry Acacio, Teacher I of PNHS who delivered his very warm and kind welcome remarks coupled with his sincere appreciation to the DWCL for responding to their invitation to conduct this 2-day Campus Journalism Seminar Workshop, inspired the team to give their best shots in all the activities.
The Divine Word College of Laoag through the Williamite envisions to continue responding to opportunities and challenges to bring the best practices on campus journalism to more schools in the days ahead. This is another special way of making life, the life of campus journalists brighter in the Light of the Word!
