Earn Your Press Pass

Florida Press Association member newspapers have access to the “Earn Your Press Pass” course developed by Kansas Publishing Ventures (KPV) in conjunction with the Kansas Press Association. FPA is thrilled to offer this course at no charge as another benefit for members as we continue the pursuit of strengthening Florida newspapers.

The course is an online, on-demand journalism course designed to aid newspapers in the fight to recruit people to their rural newsrooms. The course isn’t designed to replace journalism school but rather allow newsrooms to recruit people who already live in and are passionate about the communities the newspaper serves. Course instructor Lindsey Young is uniquely qualified to teach the course with over 10 years of high school instruction under her belt before joining her and her husband’s company, Kansas Publishing Ventures, full time in 2016. Lindsey has the teaching background and the practical newsroom know-how that makes for a perfect training partner for newsrooms.
