The Student Publication Association, the national body for student papers and journalists is holding its regional conference in Kent this Saturday.

Student journalists will be able to attend a full day of lectures, workshops and talks at the Canterbury campus, as well as network with other student journalists from across the South East.

Speakers from the Huffington Post, Wannabe Hacks, The Times and more will tackle issues such as social media verification, finding the best local stories and breaking into the industry.

The day costs just more than £5 (and it's free to get on the shuttle bus!) and also includes the opportunity to win a bottle of wine and see everyone's favourite Kent alumni (aka why wouldn't you want to see me?!?).

Any money we make will be used to cover expenses and will go back to helping student journalists across the country.
