Jennifer Walker of Best Health named PWAC editor of the year
Catching up with one of the honours given out last week: The Professional Writers of Canada (PWAC) has named Jennifer Walker, senior content editor of Best Health magazine, its Editor of the Year.
“It is a pleasure to be able to honour and acknowledge the special relationship that exist between the best editors and writers,” said PWAC Executive Director David Johnston in a release. “Without the talent and commitment of the editors in our industry, Canadian writers would not be able to shine the way they do.”
This the second year that PWAC has presented the Editor of the Year Award. The award brings national recognition and praise to outstanding editorial professionals. Written nominations are submitted by PWAC members and a panel of three member judges evaluate the nominees based on criteria that includes editing and communications skills, the ability to bring out the best in writers, and fairness of pay rates and contracts.
