Praise for Earn Your Press Pass

“I was extremely impressed. Lindsey even taught this old dog some new tricks. The content is solid, it’s easy to use, and you can sign into and out of the program as your time allows. Lindsey’s engaging nature makes the lessons enjoyable, which makes you look forward to the next segment.”
Donnis Baggett
Texas Press Association executive vice president and a 50-year veteran of small and large Texas newsrooms

“The response to the Earn Your Press Pass program has been fantastic. I added about a dozen users last week.”
Beth Bennett
Executive Director of the Wisconsin Newspaper Association

“Earn Your Press Pass is a practical, engaging, and timely system to bring cub reporters and interns up to speed quickly on the basics of journalism practice. From interviewing to writing, ethics to tape recorder use, the program is incredibly thorough. At The Daily Catch, it is required viewing for all newcomers. And veterans have also found it to be a wonderful refresher.”
Emily Sachar
Founder & Editor, The Daily Catch, Hudson Valley, New York

“This program is a wonderful tool to help new reporters get up-to-speed in all aspects of their job.  I worked through several of the modules and especially liked how clearly and concisely the materials were explained. This is something the industry has long needed, and I thank Joey and Lindsey for making it a reality. I’m certain our members will put it to good use!”
Lee Borkowski
Executive Director, Midwest Free Community Papers

“I really learned a lot from the courses! I hadn’t taken any sort of journalism classes beforehand, but now I’m able to conduct thorough interviews and write well thought out pieces from those interviews. Even my pictures have gotten better. I’m really grateful that you offer these courses, and I would certainly recommend them to other aspiring journalists!”
Jawny Hill
Tecumseh Chieftain, Tecumseh, NE

“I personally enjoyed having Lindsey as my instructor because she’s speaks nice and clear when giving explanations of journalism topics. The parts that I found useful the most were the Writing Techniques and the Editing section. Also, she gave really good points to get myself ready for interviews. I feel it was worth every minute of my time and I learned a lot. It’s very helpful for somebody who is starting in this world of journalism. Thank you so much for all the effort put on this.”
