Call for ATG Reporters (Charleston Conference)

Call for ATG Reporters (Charleston Conference)

We're again seeking reporters of Charleston conference sessions for the publication, "Against the Grain". Each year, conference attendees are invited to honestly report on Charleston conference sessions they attend. These reports will be published in ATG's "And They Were There" section.

The guidelines are simple:
•    Write a 100-200 word succinct report for each session you select (preconferences and plenary session reports could run a bit longer, but not by too much).
•    Describe the highlights of the session. Minute details are NOT needed, since a number of speakers post their presentations in the conference website.
•    Note any changes in titles or speakers that are revealed at the session and differ from what was presented in the listed program.
•    Note if, in your opinion, the session proceeded "as advertised", or were there some shortcomings.
•    Go through the preliminary program
•    Email me your name, contact information & include the date, time, and title of the session(s) you will cover for ATG.

I will confirm all session reporters before the conference to prevent duplicate coverage, and a reporters' roster (notebook) will be kept at the conference Information Desk, Francis Marion Hotel, mezzanine level.

The reports will be due to me by December 1, 2011. I will collate them and forward them to the ATG editors who decide on the publishing cycle-the reports are published in chronologic conference session order over a number of ATG issues.
Thank you!
