Small Changes, Big Difference

Presenter: Lisa McLendon

Date: June 20, 2019

Time: 4 - 5 pm eastern

Cost: Free for members, $30 for nonmembers

Description: One often-overlooked aspect of editing is the small "cleanups" editors do to make copy smoother, clearer and more concise. Many of these micro-level changes -- such as changing phrasing to eliminate words, being aware of "secret handshake" words and words in the midst of change, and not being a slave to style -- will never be noticed by either the writer or the reader, but they can  make the writing shine just a bit more and give readers a more enjoyable, informative reading experience.

Cookbook Editing from Soup to Nuts

Presenter: Karen Wise

Date: October 10, 2019

Time: 4 – 5 pm eastern

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.
