Participants of the seminar were NCPC REPS in charge of the NCPC website development project, which is scheduled to be launched come 43rd founding anniversary of the center in May 2019.
Objectives of the seminar were to articulate the elements of news and apply them in recognising newsworthy stories to be featured in the website, identify the basic principles of clear and effective writing and articulate the importance of editing and proofreading. Special attendees during the seminar were writers from Office of Public Relations (OPR), Jessa Jael Arana, Albert Peralta and Kristine Araguas and Paully Valencia from the Office of Alumni Relations (OAR). They were able to share their experiences in web writing and related activities that they do for UPLB. (RG dela Cruz/ photos: PM de Chavez, EP Micosa)
