For 30 years, Sharon Johnson connected with the readers of The Patriot-News, Harrisburg, through her arts and entertainment writing.  Her witty and informed style made her a must-read in central Pennsylvania.  In honor of Sharon's memory, PennLive/The Patriot-News sponsors this annual workshop through the PNA Foundation, focusing on the hottest issues in today's newsroom including community engagement, video, watchdog journalism and more.  Together, we recognize that while the tools, resources, formats and products may have changed since Sharon Johnson was writing, a good story is still what readers want.

When: November 13, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Cost: $15 per person for PNA members; $25 for non-members.

Registration: Email Kathleen at or phone her at 717-703-3012.
