The Washington Journalism and Media Conference
This year's conference will be held July 12-17 OR July 19-24, 2020
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

WJMC 2019 SESH 2 DAY 4
Tonight was one for the books! Don't forget to send any questions to @meghanatbreese and @ographybymatbr
Communications director Michael LaRosa came and spoke to our correspondents yesterday about politics AND journalism. Michael gave our students direction on where to start if they are interested in political communications. Thank you for speaking, Michael!
The @washingtonpost Michelle Jaconi spoke to the correspondents yesterday at the National Press Club. She encouraged the students to chase the money and take initiative. Thank you, @michelle.jaconi
Daniela Pierre-Bravo spoke to our correspondents yesterday about her trials and tribulations to get to where she is today. It was inspiring to hear from her- she is passionate about what she does and has so much energy for it. She even stayed after to sign copies of her book “Earn it!” for the students. Thanks for being such an inspiration @dpierrebravo
Mikayla Bouchard works as a senior staff editor for @nytimes and spoke to our correspondents yesterday at George Mason University Arlington. She encouraged the students to speak up when they have an idea- to not only speak up, but to speak up with strength and confidence. Thank you for speaking @mikaylabouchard
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!

WJMC had an absolute blast hearing from @kevinmccarthytv yesterday! He has so much passion for what he does and it is truly inspiring. To get where he is today he has worked incredibly hard- and for a while, he worked hard without getting paid. Now THAT is dedication! #wjmc2019

3, 2, 1... smile! 📸 📸 thank you for believing in the future generation of storytellers and journalists, Mr. Davis!
What an honor to hear from Susan Goldberg the other day at National Geographic. She is the Editor-in-Chief of National Geographic magazine and oversees all publications! #wjmc2019
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
WJMC 2019 SESH 1 DAY 3
How did this exhibit make you feel? Remember that it is our duty as journalists and as people to be a voice for the voiceless! #newseum #wjmc2019
Newseum and monuments!
Newseum and monuments!
Squeeze in and say cheese! @lblpolitico 📸
IT'S FINALLY HAPPENING! WJMC 2019
