Thursday, October 14th, 2010 at 6:30 p.m., PWAC Vancouver invites its members to the Vancouver Public Library (350 W. Georgia) to hear from member Karen Pinchin, Vancouver editor of OpenFile. We will meet in one of VPL’s meeting rooms. Please note that we will book the room from 6-8 p.m., but Karen will begin her presentation at 6:30 sharp.
OpenFile Vancouver is a collaborative community news site that will connect citizens to their city and the reporters who cover it. With a business model designed from scratch by practicing journalists, our model is built to pay writers well, on time and to allow them long-term ownership of their own content. Novel, right? We’re launching in November, and want to build a diverse team of connected and talented freelancers. If this floats your boat, Vancouver editor Karen Pinchin would love to meet you and answer any questions you may have.
As the library meeting room has limited space, this invitation is exclusive for paid-up PWAC members. After the meeting, we will head over to nearby Jimmy’s Tap House (425 Robson St) for some drinks, food and networking. Non-members are welcome to join us there around 8 p.m.
