Opening Address: Shelley Fralic

Sponsored by the Professional Editors Association of Vancouver Island

Shelley Fralic

Veteran reporter and editor Shelley Fralic will kick off the conference by presenting the opening keynote address.

Shelley began her career as a reporter in 1979, when she joined one of British Columbia’s major daily newspapers, The Vancouver Sun. She covered a wide range of topics for the paper, including sports, business, religion and general news. Shelley held a number of assistant editor positions through the mid-1980s. In 1990 she was appointed deputy managing editor, and in 1999 she was named executive editor.

Several years ago Shelley returned to writing. Today she produces columns and features on a variety of subjects as well as a blog, Social Studies. Known for her engaging, witty, no-nonsense writing style, Shelley’s Social Studies offers a delightfully irreverent and humorous examination of social issues, pop culture and modern-day life.
