This week, IUPUI will serve as host for the Associated Press Sports Editors (APSE) annual Summer Conference, which runs from June 15-18. Sports Capital Journalism Program students are busy writing preview articles about conference sessions for the APSE website, and the students will volunteer at the conference. They will also cover events as they happen during the week. Their work will appear on the Sports Capital Journalism Program website.
The conference will kick off on Wednesday evening with an opening reception at the Indiana Fever-Phoenix Mercury WNBA game at the Indiana Farmers Coliseum.
According to the APSE website, conference sessions will include coverage of sports gambling, game stories in the digital era, connecting with and attracting readers with high school coverage, and a session on career development where attendees can have resumes critiqued, learn interview techniques and job-hunting tips.
Malcolm Moran, director of the Sports Capital Journalism Program, will moderate the general session on virtual reporting on Friday.
Also on Friday, IUPUI journalism professor Pamela Laucella will serve as a panelist for the general session on Title IX.
The conference will wrap up on Saturday night with an awards banquet.
