MagNet 2013: 3 Panels of Interest to Writers & Editors
I’ll be taking part in three panels at MagNet, Canada’s biggest professional development and networking conference for magazine professionals, next week.
GOING FOR GOLD: HOW TO CREATE AWARD-WINNING CONTENT – Thursday, June 6, 2-3:15 p.m. http://magnet.magazinescanada.ca/sessions/?sessionInfo=ED5 – (Everyone wants to win awards. This session, with a panel of editors, art directors and writers — well, one writer: me — will focus on what makes award-winning articles and whether you can consciously create them. Also, does it burnish a publication’s reputation and build a brand or do readers and advertisers even notice?)
THE MAGNET ROUNDTABLE: WRITERS AND EDITORS – Thursday, June 6, 3:45-5 p.m. http://magnet.magazinescanada.ca/sessions/?sessionInfo=WR8 – (The editor-writer relationship: when it’s great, what makes it work? When it’s not, what happened? This is an informal, mainly unscripted session that will involve frank discussion, diverse viewpoints and a lot of audience participation.)
FROM PAGE TO PAYDAY: USING SOLID WRITING TO LAND NEW CLIENTS – Friday, June 7, 10:45-Noon http://magnet.magazinescanada.ca/sessions/?sessionInfo=WR12 – (How to build a successful career as a nonfiction writer: analyzing and understanding markets, earning the respect of editors and fine-tuning your writing skills.)
