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.

Magnet 2013

GOING FOR GOLD: HOW TO CREATE AWARD-WINNING CONTENT  –  Thursday, June 6, 2-3:15 p.m.  –  (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.  –  (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  –  (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.)
