RCNA OFFERS WRITER AND EDITOR SEMINAR

The new Canadian Association of Numismatic Editors and Writers (CANEW) organization is holding a seminar at the upcoming RCNA convention. Here's an excerpt from a Canadian Coin News article, which also has an event schedule for the convention. -Editor

RCNA logo We’re only one week away from this year’s Royal Canadian Numismatic Association (RCNA) Convention, which will be taking over Boucherville, Qué. from July 18-23.

The convention is being organized by host club l’Association des Numismates et des Philatélistes de Boucherville (ANPB), which has previously organized the RCNA’s annual gathering in Montréal in 1992 and 1996. This year’s show is being held at Hôtel Mortagne on 1228 Nobel St. in Boucherville, which is just east of Montréal on the south shore of the St. Lawrence River.

The bourse and exhibit hall will be open to the public on July 21 from 10 a.m.-6 p.m.; July 22 from 10 a.m.-6 p.m.; July 23 from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. In addition to more than 60 dealer tables, the convention will also boast an extensive auction, a vast offering of competitive exhibits, an educational symposium and a variety of meetings, presentations and social gatherings throughout the six-day event.

CANEW SEMINAR
If you’re a writer, or if you’re at all interested in writing, one of the highlights of the convention will be the Canadian Association of Numismatic Editors and Writers (CANEW) seminar. During its July 22 meeting, CANEW will offer a bilingual seminar exploring the various tools that are available to writers and editors to improve their craft or “simply to make their lives easier,” according to organizers. CANEW was formed last year to facilitate the sharing of knowledge between its members. Award-winning writers and editors who are members of CANEW are also willing to mentor newcomers to this area of the hobby.

For more information about CANEW, contact Serge Pelletier at pelletier@canew.club.
