Women’s Mag Editors to Eat For Sixth Year In A Row

6thdinner.jpgContrary to whatever urban myth you’ve heard, senior-level women’s magazine editors do eat. In fact, we’ve seen them do so five years in a row at mediabistro.com’s annual Dinner & Discourse event. Once again, tonight’s the night at Manhattan’s Twenty Four Fifth, and in addition to food, we can guarantee consumption of cocktails (tough economy+multiple liquor sponsors=a lock), as well a panel discussion led by New York Times writer Lisa Belkin. Newly-installed at NYT’s “Motherlode” blog, she’ll lead a discussion of strategies in a changing (read: challenging) new media/magazine marketplace with panelists Essence.com editor-in-chief Angela Burt-Murray, Hearst Web site managing editor Erin Dailey, InStyle.com senior editor Betsy Fast, Brides.com managing editor Elayne Fluker, and Realsimple.com executive director Tanya Singer.

If you can’t make it tonight, be sure to check this space tomorrow for post-game coverage, including video…
