Encouraging concise reviews and building Geist's circulation at the same time

Geist magazine, based in Vancouver, continues its ongoing annual series of workshops on how to write a succinct book review (and, not coincidentally something that works for snappy blog posts); the $50 fee includes a one-year subscription to the magazine. The seminar in Toronto on June 2 at 7 p.m.is done in collaboration with Tightrope Books and it is offered by Patty Osborne a regular contributor to Geist's Endnotes book review section. Not only does the magazine build a cadre of potential contributors with a well-honed style, but also subscribers. You can see the results of past workshops with some of the four-sentence micro-reviews posted on the website.
