Webinar description

Many of Canada’s editors use new technologies and work in industries that are far from traditional print publishing. Technological advances and current working methods are at the heart of the latest edition of Professional Editorial Standards, Editors Canada’s cornerstone publication. This new edition took effect January 1, 2017, and is now available as a free download.

So, you have your copy of Professional Editorial Standards. Now what?

  • What do you do with them?
  • How are they relevant to your work?
  • Are they only for book editors? (Spoiler: no!)
  • What kinds of changes did Editors Canada make in this new edition and why?
  • What should people who hire or work with editors know about the standards?
  • What should people who teach editors know?

Is this webinar for me?

This webinar is for anyone who works as an editor, hires or works with editors, or teaches editors. You’ll learn how the standards are broadly applicable to all editors, regardless of the type of material they work on, the media and formats they work in, or how they edit.
