From Screen to Page and Back: In Conversation with Zoe Whittall and Wiebke von Carolsfeld

Co-presented by Editors Toronto, Canadian Authors–Toronto, and the Creative Writing Program at the School of Continuing Studies, University of Toronto (UofT).

Our first joint program meeting of the 2019–20 season will feature a conversation about books and movies with two of the brightest lights in Canadian film, TV, and book publishing. Multiple award-winning writer Zoe Whittall and renowned film editor, director, and now novelist Wiebke von Carolsfeld will read from their novels, show clips from their film and TV work, and share stories about what it’s like to write, edit, and be edited across different media.

Have you ever wondered how some writers manage to do it all, publishing novels, stories, and sometimes poetry, while also writing, directing, or editing for film and TV? What kind of versatility, skills, and industry knowledge are required to move fluidly between page and screen? What can writers, filmmakers, and editors learn from those who thrive on such border crossings? Zoe and Wiebke will address these and other questions in a wide-ranging discussion moderated by writer, editor, and arts critic Lee Parpart, whose career has taken her from newspapers to film studies classrooms and hybrid publishing.

Admission is FREE for members of Canadian Authors–Toronto, members of Editors Toronto, and students and affiliates of the Creative Writing Program at the School of Continuing Studies, University of Toronto. General admission is $10 ($5 for students).

Branch meeting: Multi-platform editing: Print, digital, audio, and video

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.
