Women’s Mag Editors Meet To Discuss Launching Online Publications

mb mag editors.jpgOn Monday, mediabistro.com is holding its annual event for senior level women’s magazine and online editors. Every year the invite-only event brings together women working in the industry to swap stories and compare experiences. Its panels have previously featured editors in chief like Janice Min and Cindi Leive.

But this year, due to the significant changes that have occurred in the past year in the media and magazine worlds, the event is welcoming high profile editors who have left print publications to launch online publications — with a few representing this growing group by speaking on a panel at the event.

The event, which will include a networking cocktail hour with the panel held afterward over dessert, will feature panelists Caroline Little, the CEO of Guardian North America; Caroline Miller, the co-founder and editor-in-chief of Newser; Nicole Stagg, founding editor of Hearst‘s new beauty focused Web site RealBeauty.com; Jennifer Salant, VP of business development at Glam Media and Michelle Adams, a former editor at the now-defunct Domino who recently launched online shelter and lifestyle magazine, Lonny.

The whole event will be emceed by comedienne Sara Benincasa, who gained national notorteity last year thanks to her Sarah Palin impersonations. Benincasa will keep panelists on track with discussions about current projects, the challenges of online content, the benefits of leading an online pub, incorporating multimedia and what all of these new digital publications mean for print editors’ futures.

Attendees will also be encouraged to discuss pressing topics with tablemates, thanks to discussion topics provided at each table. “It’s something we do every year and everyone really likes it,” explained Carmen Scheidel, director of education, events and multimedia content at Mediabistro, who planned the event. “It’s like an ice breaker that’s not corny.”

Between the cocktails, dessert and free-flowing discussion, it sounds like everyone has lots of fun at these events, year after year. Don’t believe us? Check out some pictures from last year.

Although the event is closed to the public, it’s not to late for you to grab a seat. Senior level magazine or online editors can email mediabistro’s events department for ticket information.

Just to keep our readers up-to-date, Carmen Scheidel, our West Coast director of Education and Events tells us:

The West Hollywood office of mediabistro.com will close as of June 30. We’ll continue to run the same amount of classes, but we’re experimenting with other locations, since the city is so spread out. We want to make the classes convenient for as many people as possible, so we may offer them from Pasadena to West Hollywood in various locations.

And don’t forget the All Media party hosted by Michelle Thatcher on April 22 at
