The College Editors Guild of the Philippines invites campus journalists to Lunduyan, a journalism and arts workshop for college and high school students, amateurs and budding writers, on October 22-26, 2013 at Baluarte, Vigan, Ilocos Sur. It was known as the NCR Regional Student Press Convention, the annual education festival of CEGP.
For five days, students will be treated to basic, intermediate and advance journalism skills training and workshops as well as courses on relevant socio-political issues.
Aside from simultaneous classroom discussions which will feature topics on journalism, the arts, literature and current events; forum discussions on pressing issues will also be held.
Hundreds of youth participants from different parts of Luzon will be attending the five -day workshop. They are the primary beneficiaries of Lunduyan. The training and educational discussions will equip young writers and artists with tools to carry-out their role as artists and journalists in their schools and in the society.
Students who read their publication would understand the ins and outs of campus paper management and the field of journalism itself.
Indirectly, the Filipino society gains from the whole project because critical journalists and writers make for enlightened citizens who in turn create an enlightened society.
Lunduyan aims to develop the journalism and literature skills of the Filipino youth and likewise raise their social and political awareness. To reach this objective, an array of journalism training workshops and forum discussions on contemporary social issues will be featured in Lunduyan. It also aims to provide a venue for student journalist and aspiring writers to share opinions and experiences with one another and educate them on the significance of responsible journalism and writing for the people.
