CSForum 2016

CSForum is an annual content strategy conference that is being held in Melbourne this year, from 5 to 7 October.

While the conference focuses on content strategy, user experience and marketing, one of the workshops (Content strategy for copyrighters) is run by John Ryan, who presented the ‘Editing digital content’ stream at Editors Victoria's 2015 Redact residential course. The workshop could be of interest to editors looking to move into digital editing.

We recently emailed a discount early bird offer to Editors Victoria members. That offer has now expired, but groups of three or more booking together can get a 10% discount.
