The Keystone Newspaper is now The Keystone Newspaper Student Publishing Group (KSPG).

We have evolved into an on-campus collaborative publishing alliance that provides support for students interested in publishing in areas such as:

  • Campus news
  • Technology
  • Medicine
  • National or global news relevant to KU students
  • The arts
  • Weather
  • Sports
  • Abbreviated academic papers
  • Science
  • Legal
  • Music and gaming reviews
  • Informational topics related to your major
  • Other informational or journalistic-style writing

Essentially, we are developing a support/mentoring system for students who want to explore various topics through writing, publish that material online, and establish writing credentials/expertise along with a body of work.

Specifically, we will help you to create a WordPress blog, write about any informational topic you might be interested in, take photos to accompany your writing, develop videos connected to your topic, establish yourself on social media, understand the legal concerns related to publishing, and fill out your resume with skills related to writing and publishing.

And while we will direct those of you interested in creative writing to Shoofly and Essence, we definitely welcome creative writers to join us to learn about publishing and maintaining blogs.

The editors of The Keystone Newspaper want to create a rising tide that lifts all boats, which means that if we can create an environment where students have the support and encouragement to write about topics that they are interested in, that will help to cultivate mature material that can be published on the newspaper website, related to the topics listed above.

Weekly workshops will be held every Wednesday during the Fall 2022 semester from 6-8 p.m. in AF 102.  Bring your laptop and a friend.
