Death Race 2013 is Alive!
On Jan. 19, SPJ South Florida Pro hosted an obituary writing workshop in a funeral parlor in Fort Lauderdale. Sixteen journalists traveled from Naples and Orlando, and also included local journalists from Boca and Miami. Participants interviewed family members of three “dead” people — all chapter board members who volunteered to be deceased for the workshop — and wrote obituaries about them. Check out the video below to see the full recap and read the winner’s obit here. Want to host your own Death Race? Drop a line to Michael Koretzky.
