The Editors’ Association of Canada has always been a great resource for Canadians in our profession, but this year the EAC conference is going global. That’s the name of the conference, in fact: Editing Goes Global, taking place June 12-16 in Toronto. You can follow @editorcon on Twitter for updates.
I’ll be there, speaking on inclusive and politically sensitive language and enjoying my first-ever visit to Toronto. It’s an honor to be included alongside some of my editorial heroes: the list of speakers is a who’s-who of the profession, including keynote speaker and subversive copy editor Carol Fisher Saller! If you do any kind of editorial work, I highly recommend being there.
