ACES meeting in Rock Hill

A quick reminder that the Southeast chapter of ACES is holding a meeting from 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 27, at the Rock Hill Herald. There's no charge, but organizers would appreciate an R.S.V.P. For more details, go to the ACES message board or e-mail Holly Kerfoot.

Among the planned topics:
  • Doug Fischer Fisher, a USC professor who writes one of my must-read blogs, Common Sense Journalism, will lead a discussion about moderating a small-town citj site such as Hartsville Today.
  • Teri Boggess of the N&O talks about "Sports as News."
  • The N&O's wire editor, Jon Wallace, will dive into the campaigns with a discussion on what copy editors can do to give readers the news they need in forms that are easily digestible.
  • "What's Up" — an opportunity for copy editors to talk about issues in the field, or just get to know colleagues at other papers.

Thanks for the plug, but Doug's last name is Fisher, no "c."

Fixed and apologies.

Thanks, Maurreen.
