Program Introduction

Interested in journalism? It is our pleasure to invite you to join us for the Yale Daily News’ annual two-day journalism symposium on the weekend of April 30-May 1, from Saturday to Sunday. Sign up here for this year’s virtual event.

This symposium — featuring informative writing seminars, prominent speakers, and a high school newspaper competition — will be led by staff reporters and editors of the Yale Daily News. This program will give high school students the opportunity to learn about the inner workings of the journalism world in the same newsroom that produced the Washington Post’s current White House Bureau Chief Phil Rucker, the founding editor in chief of ProPublica, Paul Steiger, and many more seasoned reporters.

We hope to see you on Zoom this spring. Should any questions arise please do not hesitate to reach out to us at
