Teachers & Advisors | Anaheim Workshop 2023

Join us live and in-person for a 3-day yearbook extravaganza!

Are you a new adviser about to begin your yearbook journey? Maybe you’re taking on your 18th publication this year. Wherever you’re at, we’re here to help – let’s work together to tell your school’s best story EVER!

It’s a once-a-year opportunity to learn from an elite team of experts covering photography, design & layout, copywriting and coverage strategies – we’ve got you!

Join us at the Anaheim Mariott Suites, just a mile from Disneyland, where you’ll work with industry experts and the Friesens team to build your style guide for your upcoming yearbook. Attend three days of sessions, then take your newfound skills out to the theme parks and put them to the test!
