MagsBC board member Natasha Sanders-Kay has organized a panel at WORD on Sunday Sept. 25 @ 3:40 p.m. called "Inclusive Magazine Publishing: Barriers and Strategies for Writers and Publishers."
Canadian broadcaster and novelist Jen Sookfong Lee will be moderating the panel, which will include:
Chelene Knight, writer, managing editor (Room)
Panelists will address barriers preventing marginalized writers from getting published and offer advice and strategies for change to magazines looking to be more inclusive.
MagsBC will also have a table set up at the festival and we look forward to meeting the public and chatting about our projects, members and services.
Also of interest on Sunday is a magazine lounge in Blenz with copies of magazines to read and take away, and a pop-up magazine display around Vancouver's business district. Contact Rebus Creative for details.
WORD Vancouver runs from September 21-25th this year. The panel will be at 3:40 p.m. on Sunday Sept. 25 in The Lions tent outside the Vancouver Public Library main branch during the festival.
