Canadian University Press Archipelago (74th Annual National Conference)

I got in yesterday to the Canadian University Press' 74th Annual National Conference known as Archipelago (as each member paper is like an island in an archipelago). Anyway it was a long flight in but it has been a great conference so far. I'll be writing more specifically about what I've learned later this week for my report/presentation to the Argosy Editors' meeting on Wednesday but right now I'll provide some information on the presentations I've appreciated/learned the most from so far and the ones I'm most looking forward to tomorrow and Saturday.

So far:




And still to come:






and a professional critique of Argosy.ca by Josh O'Kane, a web editor for the Globe and Mail:



It has been really busy couple of days and I'll be exhausted and I'll have a lot of academic and other work to catch up on when I get back but I think it'll have been worth the time and energy coming out here to meet with hundreds of other people working for student newspapers and to learn from working professionals.

There will be more posts as I process everything over the next few days. Between now and then you can follow me @GeoffatMtA. I'll be mostly @ replying @CUPnash so I don't spam everybody not at the conference so if you want to see everything in your feed you'll have to check my profile or follow CUPnash as well.
