Newspaper Fund Interns Learn Copy Editing Skills
From the June 5, 1998 edition of the Southwest Journalist
Ten students representing nine universities wind up an intense two-week copy editing program Friday at The University of Texas at Austin, part of a national project to encourage and develop editors for U.S. newspapers.
The Department of Journalism is one of six sites hosting a Dow Jones News Fund Center for Editing Excellence. The center provides an editing instruction program for 10 students, who will go on to copy-editing internships at newspapers in Texas and Colorado for the remainder of the summer.
Nationally, 117 summer interns will edit stories, write headlines and design pages for leading American newspapers. Internships are from 10 to 14 weeks, depending on the needs of participating newspapers and student intern schedules.
Other Centers for Editing Excellence are at Temple University, Philadelphia, Pa.,; University of Nebraska, Lincoln; Virginia commonwealth University, Richmond; University of Missouri, Columbia; and San Jose State University.
