About the Annual Conference

The Goldfarb Center’s annual conference for student journalists, held in the fall, offers college newspaper editors, reporters, advisers and those interested in a career in journalism an opportunity to learn about various issues relating to journalism on college campuses. The conference is held in conjunction with Colby’s prestigious Elijah Parish Lovejoy Journalism Award Convocation, which honors a member of the newspaper profession who continues Elijah Parish Lovejoy’s heritage of fearlessness and freedom.

The conference focuses on a new theme each year, and includes interactive workshops, lectures, and panel discussions led by award-winning journalists from first-rate news outlets including the New York Times, the Washington Post, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and many others.

The conference is free, and travel stipends for students are available.

The @GoldfarbCenter’s conference was incredible today. Certainly changed how I will run @TheVeritasNews going forward.”
