Unconscious Bias and the Conscientious Editor
Presenter: Kory Stamper
Date: September 19
Time: 4-5 p.m. EDT
Description: Unconscious bias is something all writers and editors grapple with, whether that be political, gender, racial, or cultural bias. But how can you correct bias if you can't see it? And once you do see it, how do you correct it compassionately? This webinar will offer some tips, tricks, and tools to help time-strapped editors identify problematic language that might trip up or unintentionally offend readers.
Cookbook Editing from Soup to Nuts
Presenter: Karen Wise
Date: October 10
Time: 4–5 p.m. EDT
Cost: Free for members, $30 for nonmembers
Description: What do you need to know to edit a cookbook, for either a traditional book publisher or an individual looking to self-publish? We'll first look at the different types of cookbooks, and what that means for the copyeditor, plus a rundown of the typical outline of a cookbook. Then we'll dig in to the nitty-gritty — all the required and optional components of a recipe, including sequence, style conventions, and the many do’s and don’ts. We'll also talk about which reference works to rely on, and what to do when they don’t agree.
