NEA Arts Journalism in Classical Music in Opera

Sophia Ahmad posted her wrap-up on the NEA's Arts Journalism in Classical Music and Opera on the Des Moines Register website yesterday, a ten-day workshop with a couple of buddies of mine: Joe Horowitz and my colleague at Carnegie, Gino Francesconi.

If the takeaway was "Speak your mind, support it well," I suggest that Ahmad--and all journalists--amend the mantra to include another line: "Expand your mind, and don't stop learning."
