Meet, mingle, pitch and learn at Magawards Winners' Circle event

Nothing magazine people like better than a good schmooze with a dollop of professional development, and the Winners' Circle event being planned for Wednesday, November 25 by the National Magazine Awards should satisfy that craving between annual events. 

All NMA finalists and winners are invited to attend at the Spoke Club in Toronto (600 King Street West) from 5 - 7 pm. The event is co-sponsored by the Canadian Society of Magazine Editors (CSME).

There is a panel called Learn & Leverage and [disclosure] I'm the moderator. The speakers will be Matt Blackett, the publisher and editor of Spacing magazine, Penny Caldwell, the publisher of Cottage Life and Katherine Laidlaw, associate edtior at The Walrus, multiple nominees and winners all.

Following the panel there is the second most-favourite thing of magazine people (after winning awards) -- mingling and networking -- and the NMA is facilitating "Fast Pitch", introductions between writers, artists, editors and art directors. Finalists and winners who are from outside Toronto may be able to teleconference.

To find out more, you can go to the Magawards blog or Join Winners’ Circle on Facebook. To make their lives easier, guest are asked to RSVP to by November 13.
