WARREN - The Tribune Chronicle page one journalism workshops will begin a new session at 6 p.m. Oct. 18.
High school students in grades 9 through 12 interested in journalism, photography or simply improving their writing skills should attend the first meeting to be held at the newspaper's office at 240 Franklin St. S.E.

As the students progress, they may receive an invitation to join the page one staff, which edits and plans the page. Some teens use their training to improve their school's student newspaper.
Parents are invited to the first meeting, which will last about one hour. The cost of joining is $25.
