The American Copy Editors Society hosted an “Editing Bootcamp” for more than a dozen FIU students and South Florida professionals at the BBC campus on September 12.
Dr. Fred Blevens, in the Department of Journalism + Media, organized the day-long event, which featured Nick Jungman, the director of student media at the University of Oklahoma. Other editors included Alysha Love, deputy multi-platform editor at CNN Politics, and Merrill Perlman, a freelance editor and copyeditor.
“We were very pleased to partner with the American Copy Editors Society in presenting this daylong workshop at FIU,” said Prof. Fred Blevens. “We had an outstanding turnout of students who, along with local media professionals, had the opportunity to learn from seasoned editors.”
