The 2010 PWAC/MagNet Conference in Toronto provided so many interesting and useful seminars it was difficult to choose. Thank heavens for the small conversational groups in the lobby area, where you could chat with those who had attended the seminars you wished you’d attended, and pick up some important pointers. Some seminars were a hit, others weren’t as popular, but each one had something valuable to take home.
Keynote speaker Margaret Webb spoke about researching her book Apples to Oysters, and provided some valuable insight into where our food originates. The first annual PWAC Writing Awards were handed out and the AGM was well attended.
The presence of MagNet will be missed when PWAC holds the 2011 conference in Montreal. It’s a great way to connect with editors and learn about new markets.
