Thanks to those of you who came to our Bias in Journalism workshop earlier this month. If you missed it, you can read the recap here.
For July, we are excited to announce a new workshop presenter – Sam Amick.
With the Sacramento River Cats season well under way, the Sacramento Capitals tennis team starting in July and the buzz building for the next Sacramento Kings basketball season – there will be plenty of sports stories to be covered on The Sacramento Press and on blogs, etc.
Amick will teach a workshop on sports writing at the Sacramento Press office from 6:30 - 8 p.m. July 12.
Amick is currently an NBA columnist for Sports Illustrated at SI.com.
He received his degree in journalism from Sacramento State in 2000. He began working in The Sacramento Bee's sports department on a part-time basis during his final two years of school, then returned after a short internship at The Record in Stockton during the summer of 2000.
He became a full-time member of the writing staff in 2002 and covered everything from high school sports, college sports, pro baseball and pro football before turning his attention to the NBA in 2004.
He was the beat writer for the Kings from 2005-2010 before taking a national job covering the league at AOL FanHouse and eventually landing at SI.com.
Our office is located at 431 I St., Suite 107, in the Amtrak station. We are in the same building complex as Starbucks.
We recommend you find parking on the street, bike or take light rail, as the Amtrak parking lot charges $2 per half hour, and we cannot cover the cost of parking. If you take light rail, we will give you two passes when you get here – one to cover your trip here and one to cover your trip back.
To RSVP for this workshop, email email@example.com. If you RSVP and decide later not to attend, please send us an email to notify us that you will not be coming so we can have an accurate head count.
Thanks, and we hope to see you there!
