Schedule set for Mid-Atlantic Region workshop in Philadelphia

The APSE Mid-Atlantic region will be hosting a "drive-in" workshop on Monday, Nov. 14 in Philadelphia.
 
The event will take place at the Inquirer/Daily News building, 400 North Broad St., and begin with registration at 9 a.m. It is free and a box lunch will be provided by Temple University's journalism school. Parking will be available in the garage behind the building on Callowhill Street, between 15th and 16th. Editors, sports writers and students are welcome.
 
In addition, if you want sections critiqued, send them in advance to region chair Paul Vigna and he will assemble a few editors to offer feedback. The address for sections is The Patriot-News, 2002 Technology Parkway, Suite 300, Mechanicsburg, Pa. 17050.
