ILPC Summer Workshop

June 14-16, 2024

Texas State University, San Marcos

Since 1980, ILPC Summer Workshops have set the standard for excellence by preparing journalism students and advisers for the upcoming school year. This year, ILPC has partnered with TAJE to bring that excellence to Texas State University in San Marcos.

For three days, the nation’s finest journalism instructors will push your students in intensive learning environments. Students and advisers will spend three days immersed in hands-on journalism in their selected track. These instructors are dedicated to one goal: helping students create the best stories in the nation.

A summer workshop is the BEST way to prepare your staff for the year ahead. If you have questions, email Alyssa Boehringer at We hope to see you in June.
