Workshops on editing for the Web, and just editing too

Permalinks to this entry: individual page or in monthly context. For more material from my journal, visit my home page or the archive.

The latest round of editors' workshops from the Editors' Association of Canada (I was on the B.C. executive last year) include two that might be of general interest:

  • Anne Pepper's "Editing for the Web," on October 30. Quick synopsis: "Editing for the Web [...] involves [...] creating pages that can be read in any order and using keywords to target search engines. In this workshop, Anne will focus on the top five techniques needed to develop web-ready copy."
  • Maureen Nicholson's "Starting and Sustaining Your Editing Career," on November 20: "Explore the differences between freelance and in-house editing, review professional development opportunities and key editing resources, discuss strategies for finding work and promoting yourself effectively, and outline the fundamentals of how to make editing a profitable and enjoyable venture."

Each workshop costs $90 Cdn for EAC members, or $125 for non-members (which is quite inexpensive for this good stuff), and runs six hours on a Saturday in downtown Vancouver. You can register online.
