BC Association Of Travel Writers 2015 Symposium.

Of all the pictures of me on the internet, they used the one of me in a blue shirt and tie. Can I have a drumroll please?

Coming Soon! The British Columbia Association of Travel Writers 2015 Symposium, “Ecotourism: Tread Softly, Write with Impact” is an all-day event at the Century Plaza Hotel in Vancouver, BC on Saturday, April 18th from 9am to 5pm.
The program’s Keynote Speaker is author Jack Christie, one of Canada’s most trusted sources on travel, recreation and sport.
At some point during the day, I will be participating in a panel discussion composed of a cross section of editorial representatives to discuss ways to get your stories published. Although I am a card-carrying member of the BCATW, I also happen to be a Matador Ambassador for Matador Network, one of the largest independent online travel publishers. My role on this panel will be to discuss how Matador works and give voice to their travel editorial vision.

There will also be a second panel discussion during the Symposium comprised of industry experts who will be discussing future trends and challenges in the Ecotourism genre.
Non-BCATW members are invited for $60 until March 14, after which the rate rises to $70. Registration includes lunch, snacks, prizes and entrance to a post-Symposium networking event. If interested, you can register at
