So You Want to be a Music Journalist?

Ever wake up one day and say, ‘Boy, what this world needs is another music
journalist’? Ever wish you could get tons of free CDs and rub elbows with
scruffy, smelly superstars?  If you answered yes or no, then this event is
for you.

Come and meet the star-studded panel of actual flesh-n-blood music editors
and journalists. Hear insider advice about music journalism. Come armed with
your story ideas and get published or just sit back and soak up game.
