Register for the Society of Feature Journalists Conference

SFJ, formerly the American Association of Sunday and Features Editors, is inviting Phoenix-area journalists to their annual conference. Scheduled for Aug. 24-27 at the JW Marriott Starr Pass Resort and Spa in Tuscon, the conference will help you learn Learn how to make the entire paper your section, cope with difficult bosses, and ride the wave of user-generated content. Plus, you’ll hear from a panel of journalists and others who covered the Tucson shootings last January.

The speakers lineup includes political cartoonist David Fitzsimmons; Pulitzer Prize winner Isabel Wilkerson (“The Warmth of Other Suns”); chef Beau MacMillan (“Iron Chef America”); Arizona State University prof Retha Hill, queen of mobile apps; and writing coach Jack Hart.

Registration is $300 for SFJ members, $475 for nonmembers. (After July 29, add $25.) The daily conference rate is $75. Book at Starr Pass by Aug. 3 for the special rate of $92 per night. Register at
