Dear SPJ colleagues:
Please mark your calendars for a fun and informative evening at our next Charlotte SPJ chapter meeting at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 11. It will be held at AZN Restaurant, 4620 Piedmont Row Drive in Charlotte’s South Park area.
The program is “A Conversation with Tommy Tomlinson.” The award-winning Charlotte-based freelance writer and former Charlotte Observer columnist will talk about what he’s been up to since his last appearance with us in Summer 2014. That’s included some outstanding sports journalism, but the conversation should also touch on getting and conducting interviews and a variety of other topics.
A free appetizer buffet will be available.
We will also officially kick off the chapter’s second annual Outstanding Journalism Awards with some information about this year’s competition. We encourage members to enter their best work and to help us identify other worthy entrants.
Please contact me if you have questions. Hope to see you on the 11th!
Keith L. Cannon, Ph.D.
