The Washington Journalism and Media Conference


During the Conference, you are required to document your journey in order to receive college credit. You can use a blog, personal journal, or vlog. You can also create a website or social media account just for WJMC – whatever works for you, as long as you document somehow!

Here are some online options to document your time at WJMC:

Please share how YOU will be documenting your WJMC experience in your WJMC Virtual Community Chatter.
