The Nation's West Coast Youth Journalism Conference

Ooooh. Check this out. A Youth Journalism conference at UCLA sponsored by The Nation magazine and Campus Progress. Saturday, January 26, 2008 9:30 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.

I wonder how loosely we can define "youth". I'm young for my age.

An interesting list of speakers. Maybe if I wear a hat, and make sure my tattoo is showing...
