Now on its 10th year, Inkblots 2008: the UST National Journalism Fellowship continues its goal of molding aspiring writers through a series of journalism seminars and workshops from the country’s veteran journalists.

Organized by the Varsitarian, the 80-year-old official student publication of the University of Santo Tomas, the three-day event will be held on October 20 to 22 at the UST Thomas Aquinas Research Complex.

Inkblots 2008 will feature seminar-workshops on news writing, opinion writing, lifestyle writing, sports writing, feature writing, cartooning and campus paper management.

Invited lecturers include Inquirer columnist Conrado de Quiros, sports columnist Quinito Henson, Tempo and Panorama’s Nestor Cuartero and former New York Times correspondent Alice Colet-Villadolid.

A brainchild of Christian Esguerra, the Varsitarian’s editor-in-chief in 1998, Inkblots has grown to be a fertile training ground for journalism students nationwide. It is open to all campus journalists, campus press advisers and journalism enthusiasts.
