The MIPA Summer Journalism Workshop at Michigan State University has a variety of classes to help yearbook staff members — from beginners to the editor-in-chief — prepare for the year ahead.
Our participants are immersed for five days in the class of their choice to help them become experts in that content area. Students get hands-on experience developing themes, working on design concepts, developing leadership skills and more! Students can come to the workshop on their own or with other members of their staff.
Our yearbook design classes allow students to use the software of their choice — from Adobe InDesign to the online software platforms developed by yearbook publishers. (Students should come to the summer workshop with log-in information for yearbook company software.)
