What are your favourite online editing resources? Let’s share and discuss!
Is there an editing-related website you find you use all the time in your work? A language blog that always teaches you something new? An app you wouldn’t be without? A piece of software (or hardware) that’s made your editing life a lot easier? Please share your recommendations!
Also feel free to bring questions for your colleagues: maybe you are wondering where you can get good help with Word 2013, or what reliable dictionaries are available online, or how people communicate with authors and collaborators who live at a distance….
Elizabeth’s ever-helpful husband, Russell, will bring a screen and laptop so we can check out websites together.
If you can, please send a quick note before the meeting to Stephanie Stone at email@example.com with links to your fave resources; she’ll gather them and bring them on a USB stick.
Come Join Us!

Coming in April: Authors Talk Editing
On April 13, our guests will be a panel of Kingston-area authors — Shelley Tanaka, Melanie Dugan, and Ian Coutts — talking about their experiences working with editors. It’s going to be fascinating. Spread the word!
Note: For this event, we’ll move from our regular meeting space to the Tett Centre, so we can accommodate a bigger group to hear our fabulous panel of authors. There will be a $10 charge (waived for Editors Canada members) to help offset the event costs.
