On Thursday, July 18, 2019, the San Diego Professional Editors Network (SD/PEN) will draw on the hive mind to explore some of the most important issues editors and writers face in a unique program titled “Crowd Mentoring for Editors and Writers.” Editors and writers of all levels will have something to gain from—and contribute to—this informal-format meeting.
An open question-and-answer session will give participants an opportunity to ask the pressing and evergreen questions they’ve always wanted to ask a group of editors and writers with a wide range of experience in various specialties (e.g., technical writing and fiction editing) and environments (e.g., freelance and in-house). Among the possible topics to be discussed are
- Marketing successes—how did you land that big job?
- Productivity tips—how do you stay organized and minimize procrastination?
- Social media activity—has it been worth your time?
- Finding work on bid sites—does it pay to play?
- Professional development—how do you keep your skills sharp?
- Resources online and off—where do you go to get the answer?
The cost is free to SD/PEN members and only $10.00 for nonmembers. The evening will include snacks and beverages as well as the opportunity to network before and after the presentation.
RSVP via email to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Wednesday, July 17.
