Tell Canada's editors what you know next June

I'd like to request something of you.

Next June 9 to 11, 2006, the Editors' Association of Canada (of which I'm a member) is holding its annual conference, and it's in Vancouver for the first time since 2000. Its theme is "Cultivating Diversity" (one URL for the conference is cultivate), and the keynote speaker is Order of Canada recipient and Jade Peony author Wayson Choy.

I'm helping to organize it by putting together the conference website, which is just starting to get together. Our most recent news update is a call for proposals for sessions during the conference. If you're the type of person who has expertise that hundreds of editors (of all kinds, not just traditional book and magazine types) from across Canada might find useful—anything from nitty-gritty experience making photos or putting a print publication together to advice about blogging and podcasting—I'd encourage you to submit a proposal.

The benefits aren't huge: you get free admission to the conference, which will be a value of several hundred dollars. If you're interested, head on over and check it out. You don't need to assemble anything massive, especially since the deadline is Monday, November 7, 2005, which is only a little over a week away.
