Workshop on Publishing Begins April 9

Join the editorial board of the Republic of East Vancouver and learn the ins and outs of newspaper production, with Britannia Community Centre's Introduction to Small Publishing workshop.
Publisher Kevin Potvin leads the 10 week workshop which will produce the paper's special supplement which this time around will focus on energy - nuclear, geopolitics, and peak oil. The focus of articles will be on information and public policy choices, and a little bit of opinion too.
Participants will be expected to learn about the larger issues, discuss article ideas around the table, research those ideas during the week, write articles, edit each other's articles, design the supplement, help lay it out, raise funds for it's printing, and contribute to its distribution.
On a larger level, participants will learn firsthand what is involved in a plan to launch their own small independent newspaper.
Classes start April 9 and meet from 7-9pm. Call 6o4-718-5800 to register or visit www.britanniacentre.org.
