Memorial University’s student newspaper, the muse, is hosting a national conference of student journalists this week.

The annual Canadian University Press National Student Media Conference runs until Jan. 27 and includes detailed media training for over 200 delegates and CUP’s annual general meeting. The conference concentrates not only on improving the delegate's coverage of student issues, but also on preparing the delegates for the professional transition into the media industries. Editors, journalists, photographers, writers and managers from Canada's premiere media outlets will be leading the seminars.

Aside from the over 25 planned seminars, the conference includes a healthy list of renowned journalists delivering keynote addresses. They include Globe and Mail columnists Margaret Wente and Marcus Gee, CBC Radio’s Michael Enright, and Neil MacDonald, Washington correspondent for CBC’s The National.
