The Teen Media Academy is a full-day multimedia training for high school girls with intensive instruction led by local media producers. The media academy will take place on May 28th from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the El Paso Community College Valle Verde Campus (Room A2158) hosted by Latinitas Magazine. Teens will have an opportunity to get tips from the pros and meet a magazine editor, newspaper reporter, photojournalist, radio DJ and TV news anchor. The media training is designed to encourage girls to build confidence and learn how to express themselves creatively through media. With hands-on media workshops, girls will learn about self-expression through writing, photography, audio production, poetry and film-making. During the workshop, teens will also complete an article, photo essay, audio podcast and a video broadcast. Participants will also learn how they can become writers for LatinitasMagazine.org, a digital magazine by and for local Latina youth. Space is limited, so registration is required. The event costs $5 and covers lunch. To register, contact 915.219.8554 or firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information, visit www.LatinitasMagazine.org.
