Forum: Engaging with Media as Citizen Scholars

Friday, April 8th, 1-4:30pm

Speakers will include:

Paula Reid, CBS News

Sponsored by the William & Mary Washington Center and the Flat Hat

Creative Careers Meetup: How to Go the Movies & Watch TV & Get Paid for It

Thursday, April 14th, 12:30-2pm

180 Stadium Drive

Williamsburg, VA

Critic and pop culture writer Jen Chaney, a W&M alum, will talk about what it's like to be a journalist who covers film and television. She'll explain how she got into the field, what kind of job opportunities exist and why it actually is hard (but fun!) to go see Marvel movies and watch Downton Abbey for a living.

Please RSVP on TribeCareers.
