The Washington Journalism and Media Conference

The Washington Journalism and Media Conference This year's conference will be held July 12-17 OR July 19-24, 2020 wjmc.gmu.edu #wjmc2019
Located in Fairfax VA, Mason's beautiful campus is just minutes from Washington D.C. The unique learning opportunities in and around the nation’s capital are only part of the reason why George Mason University is ranked the #1 “School to Watch” by US News and World Report. Nationally, Princeton Review and Kiplinger’s rank Mason among the 50 best values in higher education. Mason is the only school in the D.C. area to receive these distinctions.

Check out what alumna Melia says about her WJMC experience. For her it was a journey in self-discovery!

Thank you for sharing, Melia!

"Perhaps the most important thing that I learned on my trip this past summer is: when someone goes to a place where they do not know a single person, there is a lot of self discovery that takes place. You are forced to introduce yourself to strangers who do not know a single thing about you, so you get to choose what they find out—there is no preconceived notions or information that they have 'heard through the grapevine.' It is simply you being yourself, instead of someone assuming that they know who you are."

Benzie Central High School senior Melia Lorenz got to go on a life-changing trip this past summer, and she wrote about it for us!

“With WJMC, I’ve learned that, whatever the correspondent puts into it, the reward is even greater. It can be really intimidating to get out of your comfort zone, but every time a correspondent does, that’s when WJMC is a special place.” – Matt Rasgorshek, WJMC Faculty Advisor

Incredibly thankful for our leadership team that made #wjmc2019 happen! We hope each and every correspondent that attended this year learned more about journalism and media but more importantly connected with their peers and looked out for one another throughout the week. We are so excited to see what #wjmc2020 brings!

CEO of C-Span Networks, Brian Lamb has spoken at The Washington Journalism and Media Conference for years! He is not a traditional speaker and runs the event as more of a town-hall, involving the students and asking them questions- even having them debate each other a bit. Thank you for starting the conversation on journalism in the modern world, Mr. Lamb!

We want to celebrate YOU, the student journalist! Never hold your voice back. With censorship issues it becomes easier and easier to not write the hard stories or to not take pictures of the tragedies that happen around us. But bringing to light what others want to suppress is a journalists’ job! Keep up the good work and GREAT JOB in the simulation today! #wjmc2019 #newvoices
