Watching the watchers: The new RRJ issues launch tomorrow night.
As a former editor of the magazine, I must admit to a special fondness for the Ryerson Review of Journalism
. Produced and written by Ryerson University journalism students—most in their final year of the program—the professionally edited magazine offers a serious, sustained and critical look at Canadian media and remains one of last vestiges for long-form journalism in Canada.
Tomorrow night, two new issues of the magazine, Spring and Summer 2009, will be unveiled at launch party at Toronto's Cadillac Lounge, 1296 Queen Street West, running from 5:30-8 p.m. It should be a grand party and I'm sure all the 20-something media critics who spent the last eight months working their butts off would love to see you there.
P.S. I served as a contributing editor for this year's spring issue.
P.P.S. I'm back from Australia. Tomorrow I'll post some magazine-related pictures and thoughts gathered on the trip.
