Presented by Russell Viers

Viers began his career as a reporter/photographer at the age of 16 in Lamar, Mo. His entire career since has revolved around newspapers: printing and publishing. As an Adobe Certified Instructor, he travels the world teaching production techniques to save time and improve quality. He offers more than technology, however, as he has sold advertising, laid out papers, worked in darkrooms, pasted up, reported and photographed the news and designed newspapers. Even though he has worked with some of the largest newspapers in the world, his first love is small community newspapers.

Registration fee is $20 and lunch will be provided.

Lunch is sponsored by Atomic News Tools. During this hour Viers will discuss his new software that allows small newspapers with limited staff to build their print product in InDesign, then upload to the web directly from their pages. It's a revolutionary product for small papers and worth a free demonstration.
