Spend some time with newsroom coach Rosalie Stemer

Editors: In this day of shrinking staffs and increased workload, are you concerned that your news organization is not bringing readers the high-quality content you know you're capable of providing? Are you juggling the unending demands of a 24-hour news cycle with social media, video, print, and web content? Here's a chance to meet one on one for 45 minutes with Rosalie Stemer, newsroom coach and editor, who will offer insights and suggestions tailored to your publication to help you and your staff create superior content on deadline. The sessions will take place at the APME Conference in Indianapolis, Oct. 28-30.

Please send Rosalie the materials you would like her to read by Oct 8 — your print paper or specific content on your web site. Prior to the meeting, the editor should tell Rosalie which areas he or she would like to improve, and the main problems in achieving the goals.
