SEJ will be headin’ up and movin’ out to Lubbock, Texas, October 17-21, 2012  for an unparalleled Western adventure on the High Plains, hosted and sponsored by Texas Tech University.
SEJ member Randy Lee Loftis, veteran environment writer for The Dallas Morning News, is serving as conference chair.
Come to the vast, historic Southern Plains to ask questions that span the globe. Saving the land, fighting for water, feeding billions, facing extreme weather, hunting toxic risks, finding cleaner energy, risking all in Mexico, battling for the presidency, writing legendary books – these are just a sampling of SEJ’s 2012 conference, hosted by Texas Tech University. Learn, too, about new ways of storytelling. From bison herds, Comanches, cavalry, and the Dust Bowl to today’s science to save the planet, West Texas’ wide horizons have always inspired great and dramatic stories. SEJ and Texas Tech invite you to discover yours.
