As an editor, do you want to know more about cutting-edge developments in multimedia, including print-based storytelling combined with new work in 360-degree photography and Virtual Reality? Are you looking for ways to adapt your skills and experience to an increasingly multimedia publishing industry by learning how to think and edit across multiple platforms? Join us on November 28 for an exciting panel discussion led by four experienced editors whose work combines various aspects of print, digital, audio, and video content. Andrew Tolson (Rogers Media), Katie Underwood (Chatelaine), Anne-Marie Jackson (Toronto Star), and Jennifer Albert (Colborne Communications) will discuss their work on the digital and audiovisual side of formerly print-only publications, and address a wide range of issues related to industry-wide shifts from print to multimedia production.
