This practical workshop is ideal for beginner and novice editors, and everyone is welcome! We will start with a discussion of the different types of editing and clarifying frequently used terms, then move on to as many practice exercises as time and discussion allow.
Advance payment is a big help to us in planning. Payments can be made through our website, manitobaeditors.ca. Regular price is $40, but members of the MEA or Editors Canada pay only $20, student members $10.
RSVPs to meaworkshops@ gmail.com are also greatly appreciated. Just send us a quick email to let us know you will be there. This is a great time to identify any particular questions or skills you hope to see addressed at the workshop and let us know of any food allergies.
Light refreshments will be provided. You are welcome to bring your own lunch or snacks.
