San Diego Professional Editors Network Logo

On Thursday, January 17, 2019, Suzanne Sanders from the UCSD Extension Copyediting Certificate Program will explore the different types of reading audiences and their needs as well as how editors can develop a stronger working relationship with their clients. Sanders will draw on aspects of reader response literary criticism and apply the Common Reader peer-review method developed by Dr. Karen Gocsik of UCSD’s Analytical Writing Program.

Suzanne Sanders earned her M.A. in English from DePaul University and her B.A. in English from Northern Illinois University. She teaches for UCSD Extension’s Copyediting Certificate Program and for UCSD’s Analytical Writing Program. Previously, she taught as an assistant professor of English at Wilbur Wright Community College, DePaul University, Dominican University, Columbia College, and Triton College.

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 no later than Wednesday, January 16.
