Practicing journalists, students, educators and anyone interested in pursuing a career in writing can find something to meet their needs at the Society of Professional Journalists' Writers Workshop in Houston, Texas.

Scheduled for Nov. 11-12, at the Houston Marriott - West Loop, the workshop offers 30 professional development sessions, each designed to sharpen a writer's competitive edge and enhance writing and reporting skills essential for success.

The workshop features topics on reporting, copy editing, freelancing, computer assisted journalism, listening to the readers, and feature writing. Bruce DeSilva, formerly of The Hartford Courant, will lead a keynote address on "Capturing the Details That Make Stories Come Alive." Harry Levins, senior writer and writing coach at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, will follow with "10 Commandments of Good Newspaper Writing."
