Suzanne Norman, coordinator of SFU's Summer Publishing Workshops is spreading the word:
Trying to get a foot in the door of publishing?
Trying to get that promotion?
Need to hone your editing, production or design skills?
Registrations and applications are now being accepted in Canada's premier publishing education program: Simon Fraser University's Summer Publishing Workshops.
Keep pace with the dizzying changes in the publishing industry. Work with the top publishing minds from across Canada and the US to hone you skills in all areas of publishing: books, magazines, editing, design and production.
One and two day seminars will quickly get you up to speed in topical issues, trends and needed skills. Immersion and intensive workshops in book publishing, editing and design plunge you deep in the process with hand's on training by the best in the business.
In 2008, more than 100 faculty, and approximately 450 participants, will come to SFU Vancouver in the downtown core for 38 workshops in books, magazines, editing, and design.
At the Symposium on the Book, crime writing aficionados and literary fiction connoisseurs alike will be stimulated and engaged in this year's Symposium on the Book as 10 of Canada's top experts on all aspects of crime writing and publishing delve deep not only into the techniques and mechanics of writing crime, but into the role and place of 'genre' writing in Canada.

*This is actually the emblam for the science and engineering faculty at SFU, but I couldn't find one for the summer writing program. Perhaps I should have just posted a picture of a grassy hillside on campus...
