Welcome to APME's NewsTrain

NewsTrain is a national touring workshop sponsored by APME that has served more than 7,000 journalists in their own cities since 2003. Programs are designed to provide training in the digital skills, knowledge, and information needed in a rapidly changing media setting, at an affordable cost. NewsTrain’s attendees include frontline editors, department heads, senior editors, reporters, copy editors, visual journalists and online producers working on multiple platforms. College journalism professors and students also find NewsTrain programs valuable, as do communications specialists.

NewsTrain workshops for 2017:

  • Norman, Oklahoma, on March 4, at the Gaylord College of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Oklahoma;
  • Beverly, Massachusetts, about 26 miles north of Boston, at Endicott College;
  • suburban Columbus, Ohio, at the Dublin campus of Ohio University; and
  • Seattle, Washington, at the University of Washington.
