What’s the one typo you really need to avoid in Inuktitut?
To find out, join us on January 8 for the first Editors Kingston gathering of 2020, where John Thompson will share his experiences as web editor for Nunatsiaq News and other publications based in the North.
We’ll also learn about the editing process at an online news site, how staff residing thousands of kilometres apart collaborate, and what it was like to live and work in Iqaluit.
John Thompson is a writer and editor who has spent more than a decade working as a journalist in Canada’s North. From his current base in Kingston, he serves as the web editor of Nunatsiaq News, the newspaper of record for Canada’s eastern Arctic.
John started his journalism career working as a reporter and assistant editor for Nunatsiaq News while living in Iqaluit, Nunavut. He then moved to Whitehorse, where he reported for the Yukon News and later served as that newspaper’s editor. Before returning to Nunatsiaq News, he spent a time serving as the managing editor of the online news startup Arctic Deeply.
