Hey all! Alright, my husband and I are starting a newsletter, Scream Freely, that'll be distributed around Minneapolis. The newsletter is for anyone to write about anything -- politics, religion, any personal perspective. For example we have a 19 year old soldier in Kuwait who is submitting parts of his personal journal. This is also for any articles that have impacted your personal perspective.

If anyone is interested, reply here, you can post it up, or you can e-mail us at screamfreely@gmail.com

Scream Freely

**side note: you don't have to live in the area, this is a place to connect and share and open up conversation... also, you may use a pen name or no name, we aren't here for gossip or war**

Hello, I just wanted to introduct myself. My name is Farrah. :) I'm a communiations major with emphasis in journalism and I am minoring in International Affairs at Culver-Stockton College. I've written for several papers already and I'm in love with the profession. If you want to read any of my articles, you can google me ("Farrah Welsh").

I'm just kinda looking to get to know some other journalism nuts like me. :) Thanks!

A little about the job market
So it was part of my five year plan to graduate and work for a media somewhere in Japan. Not to say that the dream is gone, but I came on this little gem of information as I was researching the job market.

That large lump of land that we would like to call europe is at it again. I always thought that it would have an abundance of Journalist. Though through much research, I've found that they in fact are in need. So to all my fello journalist, I say, save your money and be ready to relocate if need be. The market is always moving, and it would be nice to be able to move with it.

stuck in the service
So I got a question. I'm getting ready to enlist in the Navy. The job that I sought out was journalism. I plan to finish college while I am enlisted through the NROTC program. I am worried though, that some media forms will be biased to hire me because I worked for the Military. Is that an untrue rumor or what?I just wanted to get some advice. Oh yeah, hopefully it will look good when I apply to columbia for grad school.

Grad School
Hi folks, I'm new here. I'm looking into grad schools right now and I'm hoping some of you will be able to give me some input. The few that have tickled my fancy, from what I've read so far, are the University of Missouri, Columbia University, Northwestern University, Indiana University, and UC Berkeley. I'm currently a junior undergrad at Ohio University.

I'm sure you see a lot of these requests here, but what's your opinion on these schools -- or do you have any better suggestions that I ought to look into?

Also, what can you tell me about the cities they're located in?

Thanks for your help!

Hey everyone,

I'm a recent grad (May 05) from Syracuse University. I've been applying for jobs all over in the broadcasting field, mostly on radio. My question is, does anyone have any suggestions for places to look for posted jobs and such. I already subscribe to AMFMjobs and I make my daily visits to Infinity and Clear Channel's (and other media companies) websites. I do have a lot of experience so I'm not that worried, I know somthing will come along, but it doesn't hurt to try to speed up the process. I've been a field reporter and an anchor for the 2 radio stations at school and I interned 2 consecutive summers at KILT-AM in Houston, TX.

Thanks a lot,

Hello, my name is Annie. I'm graduating from college next year as a communication major, and like the user info said, have been beat over the head with term networking...so I thought i'd search livejournal for it (because i'm an LJ junkie).
I would love to be added to your networking list if you'll have me. I'm hoping to break into PR in Boston, preferably a college where I could also get my MBA. So that's my story.

Good afternoon!


I was wondering if anybody needs a correspondent or a journalist in Russia.

Just wanted to promote myself for that position:)

I live in Moscow, though I went to the United States for a year. That's why I'm fluent both in Russian, Armenian (that's my 2nd native language) and English.

I would be glad to write for any kind of 'English-speaking' newspaper or magazine.

For those who are interested, my email is black.amber at gmail.com

Need writers/photographers for online entertainment magazine

I am the EIC for The Media Fix (http://www.themediafix.com). I am currently looking for individuals interested in experience with the field of journalism and entertainment.

I have about 7 positions open for writers and photographers.

Unfortunately, at the moment, there is no pay. But usually the experiences are invaluable as well as the excitement over receiving free cds/dvds/concert tickets/merchandise. We also hope to launch The Media Fix into print in the near future which would then pay our writers.

I'm looking for individuals between the ages 18-26 within or near major cities across the US including:

Orlando, Washington DC, Boston, St. Louis, Atlanta, Baltimore, Providence, Dallas, Nashville, Pittsburgh, Detroit, Houston, Austin, New Orleans, NYC, Chicago, Phoenix, Salt Lake City, Denver, Albuquerque, Tuscon, Las Vegas, Seattle, San Diego, Los Angeles, Sacramento, San Francisco, Minneapolis, Columbus, Cincinatti, Cleveland, Richmond, Norfolk, Portland

Tasks include writing articles on music, movies, video games, city life, advice, current events, etc. We also have positions for those interested in promotions and advertisement. The jobs are rather demanding since The Media Fix updates weekly but if you are dedicated and enjoy the arts, I promise you will love working for The Media Fix.

Benefits include free things such as concert tickets, dvds, vgames, cds, and the opportunity to speak with accomplished individuals in the industry.

You can check out the site at www.themediafix.com

Let me know if you're interested by contacting me (themedia@themediafix.com or on myspace themediafix)

We're also looking for bands who would like to be featured so please submit an e-mail if you'd like some coverage. We are currently looking for bands willing to perhaps set up a contest on our site for their fans. Send any ideas to themedia@themediafix.com

Any schools that offer journalism degrees online?
I'm looking for an accredited college that offers either an AA or a BA in journalism through correspondence courses. I have taken a lot of my general classes at community and state colleges, so it would be nice if some of that would transfer over...

Any ideas?

For those of you who major(ed) in Journalism or Communications, do you have a double major/minor/concentration?

It seems most schools require it, if I'm not mistaken.

If you do, what did you double major/minor/concentrate in?

Though this is just a general college question, I had such excellent responses to my previous posts, so I thought I would take a shot here.

To be admitted as a transfer student to pretty much anywhere, you seem to have to have a minimum of 45-60 credits.

My question is this..

If I were to transfer after my first year, that would be I would have more credits than an entry-level freshman, but less than the required transfer credits - would my credits still transfer, or would I have to repeat them all over?

And even if I don't have to repeat them, would it still be best to just stay at the same school until I can be admitted elsewhere as a transfer student?

Thanks in advance.

Also, ANY advice you can give me on college in general would be excellent.

I'm basically on my own when it comes to this - I'm out of highschool and not yet in college, and have no one to consult.
