Topics cover various components of editing — grammar, style, word usage, sentence structure, readability, editing techniques, ethics, working with writers and publishers, working with the web and social media, working with numbers, and more — as well as career and leadership advice and advice on teaching editing.
The 2019 national conference will be at Omni Providence in Providence, RI, March 28-30, 2019.
