Texas Center for Community Journalism launches writing coach program

STEPHENVILLE – Texas Center for Community Journalism training programs are back in full swing this fall with a design workshop at Tarleton State University and the launching of a new writing coach program.
The center’s first 2021 workshop, “Eye on Design” featuring TCCJ staff members Broc Sears and Robert Bohler, is set Nov. 17-18. While the two-day workshop sessions and hotel stay in Stephenville are free — funded by TCCJ — enrollment is limited.
