While getting theoretical knowledge of the inner intricacies of Journalism and the working of the Newspaper industry, the outgoing students, hailing from various parts of the country, particularly the North Eastern states, also had a first-hand experience in writing hard and soft news articles.

Theoretical inputs included, basic knowledge about the different parts of a newspaper, writing lead, writing feature stories, editorials, letter to the editor, traits of a journalist, photojournalism, journalism ethics etc.

The field experience of going out and interacting with the people of Dimapur town formed a major part of interviewing and reporting. The programme concluded on 26 November amidst high level of satisfaction and sense of achievement.

It may be noted that this is fifth consecutive year that this workshop has been organized for the final year students.
