Kevin Slimp: Getting People to Pick Up Your Paper
Getting people to pick up your paper is the top priority of many newspapers right now. Sure, we need to sell advertising, but if people aren’t picking up your paper, you won’t have many advertisers. Why do readers pick up one paper over another? What would make someone subscribe to your paper – or what would turn them off from subscribing? Kevin Slimp speaks on this topic at newspaper conferences internationally.

Kevin Slimp: Increasing Your Adobe InDesign Efficiency & Skills Using Scripts
January’s session on InDesign Styles was immensely popular, and we learned that our newspaper editors and designers want to learn more to increase efficiency in the application used by most papers for page and ad design.
Most newspaper designers have little, if any, idea of the power behind scripts in InDesign. In this session, Kevin will cover how to use scripts, where to get them (they’re often free) and how to use the scripts that come installed with InDesign (you have 20 already).
You will love this session and begin using scripts immediately. Scripts are one more tool to ad to your arsenal to produce pages and ads more efficiently, and with better results.
