Journalists aspiring to be editors and editors needing a refresher course can all be accommodated at the Society of Professional Journalists' Front-Line Editing Workshop in Akron, Ohio.

The two-day workshop, sponsored by The Akron Beacon Journal, is scheduled for June 29-30 at the Akron West Hilton. Attendees will have an opportunity to get seasoned editors' perspectives on what the early career editor's job is and isn't, learn from those who have wrestled with budgets, hear practical advice on adding style to stories without diminishing their quality, and learn how to deal with the public in a variety of professional development sessions. There will also be professional development sessions on time management instructed by Dave Bennett, professor, Indiana State University and dealing with libel and personnel issues instructed by Fritz Byers, attorney, Toledo, Ohio.

Conference leaders include Trevis Mayfield, assistant editor, Tribune Star, Terre Haute, Ind; Glen Guzzo, managing editor, Akron Beacon Journal, Akron, Ohio; Dennis Dible, managing editor, Beaver County Times, Beaver,Pa.; and Madelyn Ross, managing editor, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Pittsburgh, Pa.
