The Editors’ Association of Canada would like to invite members of your organization to a groundbreaking international editing conference, to be held in Toronto from June 12 to 14, 2015.
Editing Goes Global marks the first time that EAC and similar organizations from around the world will partner for an unparalleled weekend of international networking, learning and fun.
Renowned speakers: The two keynote speakers will certainly garner a lot of attention.
The Saturday speaker is Carol Fisher Saller.- Carol is one of the editors of the Chicago Manual of Style and is the editor of the Chicago Manual of Style’s Online Q&A. She is also the author of The Subversive Copyeditor: Advice from Chicago (or, How to Negotiate Good Relationships with Your Writers, Your Colleagues, and Yourself).
The Sunday speaker is Katherine Barber, editor-in-chief of the Canadian Oxford Dictionary and author of Only in Canada, You Say and Six Words You Never Knew Had Something to Do with Pigs.
The conference will feature other speakers from the US, the UK, Ireland, New Zealand and Canada. They include experts in print and online publishing, as well as in the government, corporate, not-for-profit, writing and communications sectors. Many editors and other communications professionals follow these speakers online, in blogs and through other social media.
Partners: In addition to international editing partners, EAC teamed up with the Professional Writers Association of Canada (PWAC). This will give attendees access to three full days of sessions on editing, writing and communications.
Fees and registration discounts: An early-bird discount is available until February 28, 2015. Members of any of the partner associations are entitled to discounted registration fees.
Please visit the conference registration page for more information on fees, as well as discounts on travel and accommodation.
Member sponsorship Some international editing and writing organizations are choosing to sponsor an editor for the conference by paying travel and/or registration expenses. If you are interested in rewarding a deserving editor in your organization in this way, please contact Gael Spivak for further information.
Canada welcomes the world in June. We hope you will join us.
