Derek at GnomedexSome of you might be interested in these techie seminars, workshops, and conferences I'm involved in over the next few months:

  • Next Wednesday, May 24, I'm speaking at Vancouver Film School as a "podcasting expert" (not my terminology) for the Writing for Film, TV, and Interactive Media program, from 6 to 9 p.m. I'm not sure whether the general public can come, so you'll have to take your chances.

  • June 9-11 is the Editors' Association of Canada National Conference, this year in Vancouver at SFU Harbour Centre. The overall conference is a great deal for $300 Cdn (EAC members) or $450 Cdn (non-members), since it features a whole slew of great sessions and a keynote speech by Order of Canada recipient Wayson Choy. If you work with language at all, I recommend it.

  • As part of the EAC Conference, on Friday, June 9, I'm giving an expanded version of my "Build a website in 15 minutes" workshop, which costs you a mere $42 (members) or $68 (non-members) (details on my workshop and others are available). You can listen to the podcast of a shorter version to get a feel for it.

  • On Thursday, July 6, I'm running a day-long onscreen editing course for SFU's Summer Publishing Workshops program, including information about Microsoft Word, as well how to work with email messages, web writing, and electronic documents of any other type. I've held numerous previous seminars like that one.

I think that covers it for now. Oh yeah, and my wife and I'll be at Gnomedex in Seattle at the end of June, for which I'm writing and recording the custom theme song.
