By “our,” I’m referring to 31 other college students/recent graduates as well as myself. This means that I’ll be learning with and from 31 other young journalists for the first two weeks of summer in Florida.
This is why I missed my own graduation ceremony on Saturday evening: to arrive at Poynter on time.
I’m not sure how much of the program we are allowed to disclose, but for now, I’ll leave it at this:
We get 24/7 access to the Poynter building, its beautiful facilities and its many resources.
We’re working alongside and learning with/from some really talented journalists.
And we’re all pretty excited to be here.
Sara and Al have promised us a rigorous two weeks here that may or may not involve a few all-nighters, so I’m not sure how much I’ll be tweeting and blogging over this period of time. But I’ll do my best. But I’m here to learn — so that comes first.
And, of course, I’ll try to continue posting spring break film (gulp).
