Ed2010: on RRJ.ca and details of the next Happy Hour event

Check out the profile of Ed2010 on the Ryerson Review of Journalism website. (In case you don't know, I'm the Canadian Director of the editorial networking group.) I just want to add a shout-out to assistant chapter host Briony Smith, who didn't happen to be mentioned in the article (though she was interviewed) – she coordinates all our Toronto Happy Hours, among other things.

Speaking of Happy Hours, Ed Toronto's next one is being held Wed., March 11, 6-9 pm at The Duke of York (39 Prince Arthur Ave., near the Bedford exit of St. George subway station), in the 2nd floor conservatory (go upstairs to the back).

Come out and mix and mingle with other magazine editors. We're having another Chat-with-an-Editor Raffle, with a chance to win dinner with Liza Cooperman, executive editor of Hello! Canada. Tickets are $6 in advance, $5 at the event. Plus, we've got door prizes: Everyone in attendance has a chance to win one of two free one-year subscriptions to Walrus Magazine.

So come on out and bring all your friends!!! For full details, check Ed Toronto's Facebook event page.

Great group for those starting out. Hmm, maybe we need to start one for the magazine web departments - many of us are departments of one!

BTW, will the name Ed2010 change after 2010?

Thanks, Sharon. We've always considered web editors part of the Ed community and welcome them with open arms! Perhaps a special web editing seminar is in order...

And yes, Ed's name will change. Keep an eye here for the news sometime in the next year or so.
