Making an Editor's Web Site Worth the Work It Takes
January 15, 2003
Special Note: Our meetings are now being held at the YWCA Health and Wellness Centre, 535 Hornby Street, Vancouver.
The Editors' Association, B.C. Branch, is pleased to welcome Derek K. Miller as guest presenter at our next meeting on January 15, 2003. Derek is a member of the B.C. Branch. He will offer his thoughts and insights on "making an editor's Web site and making it worth the work." He will also happily entertain questions and comments from the floor. See his first thoughts on the topic in last month's West Coast Editor [December 2002].
Derek lives in Burnaby, and has worked as a writer and editor for over fifteen years, specializing in technical and scientific subjects. On-line since 1983, he has used the Internet since 1990, when he also started making part of his living as a drummer and singer.
Derek has a B.Sc. in Marine Biology and a diploma in Applied Creative Non-Fiction Writing from UBC. He started the Penmachine Media Company in early 2001 after working for a software company and a gardening magazine. He currently manages and maintains four Web sites, including his own. When it launched in 1997, his site had a long and messy Web address, but since 2000 it has lived at www.penmachine.com.
If you have any particular topics you'd like Derek to address at the meeting, please e-mail him at firstname.lastname@example.org -- or just ask him on the 15th.
We now meet in the Welch Room on the 4th floor of the YWCA Health and Wellness Centre, 535 Hornby Street (just north of Dunsmuir) in downtown Vancouver. This is one block northeast of Burrard SkyTrain station OR two blocks west of Granville Street. Parking for the evening is available across the street for $3.00 from 6:00 p.m. Hornby Street runs one way north.
Please join us for our first meeting of 2003 to learn more about making an editor's Web site and to network with other editors. Guests are welcome ($5 fee). See you at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, January 15, 2003!
