NUJ subbing debate sparks crisis

I’ll be kicking off a discussion on subbing and production journalism at the NUJ London freelance branch on the 8th June. It’s at the Friends’ Meeting House in Euston. The aim is to provoke thought and discussion rather than man the barricades, and I’ll be interested to hear other people’s views on how we can deal with the changing demands of the trade. Come along if you can.

Notice of the meeting almost sparked a mid-life crisis when I read the description of myself as a “veteran sub-editor”. I’m just off to look at open-topped sports cars.
