Applications for the 2005 Summer Institute for Midcareer Copy Editors are now available.
What is the program? It's a week of training by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Journalism and Mass Communication, sponsored by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.
The tentative schedule for this year's institute includes an AP style update from Norm Goldstein, a session on managing people from the Washington Post's Vince Rinehart, and refreshers on grammar, math, libel, privacy and geography.
They pay for the training, airfare, lodging and breakfasts. You cover other meals and incidentals.
The institute is July 10-15. The application is due May 13.
