In the fall every year, two events occur that are. of interest to me as publisher of well-researched titles on Greater Yellowstone (see the Yellowstone Treasures website). This year they are taking place simultaneously, and I chose one.
PubWest, a trade association formerly known as the Rocky Mountain Book Publishers Association, puts on fun and informative conferences. Today they released this attractive poster for the conference. We’ll have to stay tuned for more details.
I got a chance to meet a couple of the senior editors on staff at UC Press last May during the Saturday lunch at my first National Museum Publishing Seminar. That’s a biennial conference that was held at the Parc 55 Hotel in San Francisco this year. A highlight of the weekend was the party at “the newly transformed and expanded San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) [, which] opened its doors to the public on May 14, 2016.”
While my husband attends the Microscopy & Microanalysis conference in Baltimore this week, I decided to be a part-time tourist and copyedit a journal article part-time as well. Today I visited the National Aquarium, which I was surprised to discover contains much more than a shark tank, numerous fresh- and saltwater tanks of fish and coral, and a movie theater. That could be because it is two aquaria merged together.
I am a member of several professional organizations that have been helpful in different ways over the years.
Back in about 2004, before Microsoft purchased LinkedIn, I joined up as a way to publicize my business. I have added to my profile over the years so that it reflects my background and skills well, and I enjoy making connections.
