The early bird discount for a weeklong storytelling seminar in Texas has been extended until Jan. 20.

The Advanced Storytelling Workshop is scheduled for April 6-11 at Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas.

Registrants save more than $125 by registering at the early bird rate.

Participants will work incredibly hard during this weeklong workshop but by graduation will have new tools to take their storytelling to the next level, according to organizers.

The program is designed for experienced newspaper and TV photojournalists, reporters and video journalists – anyone who tells stories with moving pictures, sound and words.

This hands-on program is a mixture of classroom sessions combined with opportunities for participants to head out into central Texas and produce on-deadline stories that showcase what they’ve learned.

There are regular assignment meetings where story ideas are evaluated and refined. Great emphasis is placed on developing a clear focus before shooting begins. Stories are produced under real-world deadlines.

The finished stories are constructively critiqued by a faculty that includes some of the best reporters and visual journalists in the industry today.
