PWAC names three finalists for Editor of the Year Award

The Professional Writers Association of Canada today named three finalists for its Editor of the Year Award. They are:
  • Rebecca Caldwell, Acting Managing Editor, Cottage Life
  • Graham F. Scott, Editor, This Magazine
  • Carmine Starnino, Senior Editor, Reader’s Digest
“Each year we ask freelance writers from across the country to help us recognize the best and most deserving editors working in Canadian publishing,” said PWAC President Tanya Gulliver. “Our three finalists for PWAC’s 2011 Editor of the Year Award – Rebecca Caldwell, Graham F. Scott, and Carmine Starnino – are recognizable names who do great work for top Canadian publications. They’re also the kind of editors that Canada’s freelance writers love to work with.”
The winner and two honourable mentions will be announced during the Writers’ Industry Awards Luncheon at the MagNet magazine conference on June 10 in Toronto.
Written nominations are submitted by PWAC members and a panel of three member judges evaluate the nominees based on criteria that include editing and communications skills, the ability to bring out the best in writers, and the fairness of pay rates and contracts.
PWAC, established in 1976, is the national organization representing over 600 freelance writers and journalists in Canada.
