Kansas Publishing Ventures launches ‘Earn Your Press Pass’


Kansas Publishing Ventures (KPV) is launching a new, online learning platform geared toward small community newspapers called “Earn Your Press Pass.”

The course’s goal is to take a person in a small community who has solid reading and writing skills and give them the basic journalism background to help them become a solid reporter at a newspaper.

“The labor shortage is real, and finding former journalists or recent journalism school graduates to move to smaller communities is nearly impossible,” KPV majority owner Joey Young said. “The purpose of the course is to give the basics to a solid candidate who just needs a little bit of training to make for a good reporter candidate.”

Lindsey Young, co-owner of KPV, is teaching the course and is uniquely qualified to do so as a former high school journalism and public speaking teacher for over 10 years. She joined Kansas Publishing Ventures full-time in 2016 but was involved since Joey and Lindsey purchased their first community newspaper, The Clarion, in 2014.
