Keynote speakers

Editors 2024 is delighted to announce two amazing keynote speakers.

Amber Riaz (she/her)

Amber Riaz Headshot.

Amber Riaz works part-time at the Independent Evaluation Group, World Bank as an Editorial Assistant, where she supports the publishing team in preparing reports for publication and performing other administrative duties as needed. In addition, Amber edits academic books, journal articles, and dissertations/ theses mostly in the humanities and social sciences through her own freelance editing business—A4 Editing. Amber is a member of Editors Canada, the current chair of the Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Committee, and a volunteer project coordinator for the Canadian Council of Muslim Women (CCMW)–Vancouver. She is passionate about matters of inclusion and diversity as they apply to the publishing industry and works hard to keep up with discussions about conscious language and its use in manuscripts. In her spare time, she loves to read fiction, knit, hike, and experiment with fusion cooking.

Adrienne Montgomerie (they/them)

“An awesomer of hard words” is how Adrienne describes themself. You probably know them as SciEditor, or the one who tells you to raise your rates, that perfection isn’t scientifically possible, and that there’s an easier way through MS Word. Or maybe you know them as an avid sea kayaker or hand feeder of blue jays and wild turkeys. Adrienne has been a freelance editor of technical materials like manuals and textbooks in the so-called hard sciences, maths, and software since 1997. Since 2012, they’ve been teaching privately and in editing programs at major universities, including Simon Fraser! Adrienne won both the Virag and d’Anjou awards, and is a certified copy editor hailing from the traditional lands of the Huron Wendat, Ojibwe and Haudenosaunee peoples at the eastern tip of Lake Ontario.

Conference theme

Presenting the theme of the 2024 Editors Canada conference: Present Progressive: Passion, Precision and Purpose. 

The pervasive stereotype is that editors are pedantic, pretentious and perhaps even pugnacious pencil pushers. This conference committee plans to protest this presumption by presenting programming that promotes the pleasure, pride and personal connection our work brings, while also plunging into professional development to future-proof our proficiency. Please pack your puns, peers! We’ll prepare the party.

Brought to you by the letter P and our 2024 conference chairs.
