Writing is the recurring theme of this year's Wordstock, the annual event hosted by Ryerson University's journalism alumni association. It will be held on Saturday October 2 at the Ryerson School of Journalism.
After a few years of dabbling successfully in the new journalism tools and styles, this is a retro version of Wordstock. It will be all about writing, both fiction and non-fiction.
We’re returning to a former format of three streams of seminars, one in the morning after the keynote...and then we’ll break for a free barbecue lunch and networking at a nearby pub. We’ll resume at 1:45 p.m. with two streams of four seminars each, all on writing. The day ends at 4:30 p.m.
Among the magazine-related sessions is one by former Chatelaine editor Kim Pittaway entitled "Magazine readers want stories", outlining how to inject character and narrative into all kinds of magazine writing.Further information. You can download a pdf brochure. The cost is $75, $50 for Ryerson journalism alumni or students from other accredited journalism programs.
