SPJ South Florida Pro Presents: Multimedia Meet-up

With layoffs in traditional media and new opportunities emerging online, it’s no longer enough to be just a writer, editor, designer, photographer or videographer. Today’s journalists must cover the news across multiple platforms, and SPJ’s South Florida Pro Chapter is here to help you learn how.

SPJ South Florida will host its first monthly meet-up on multimedia journalism on Thursday, March 24 at 7 p.m. in the Sun Sentinel building in Fort Lauderdale. The meet-ups are designed to bring local journalists together to upgrade skills, share knowledge and discuss trends.
