On behalf of the Northwest Independent Editors Guild, Jill Waters, Guild President, invites San Diego Writers and Editors Guild members to Red Pencil 6: Tracking Changes in Editing conference on September 23, 2017, in Kenmore, WA, just north of Seattle. The Washington Guild is making an effort to reach out to other regional editing groups.
The Editors Guild (www.edsguild.org) is a nonprofit professional organization, based in the Pacific Northwest, with a membership of more than 300 editors of the written word. Every other year, the Guild hosts more than 200 editors and publishing professionals at the Red Pencil conference in Seattle—the largest regular editing conference on the West Coast.
This year’s full-day conference will offer sessions that appeal to editors of all experience levels and genres: from fiction to academic, cookbooks to comic books, and everything in between. Both freelancers and in-house editors, and those who do a little of both, are welcome.
Our 2017 keynote speaker is Karen Yin of the Conscious Style Guide and AP vs. Chicago websites. Additional presenters include Carol Fisher Saller of the Chicago Manual of Style, Barbara Fuller of Editcetera, Laura Poole from Copyediting.com, Wendy Barron of Editors Canada, and many more.
