Get Your Red Pens Ready

Find out what happens when you bring together editors from across Canada to learn, network, and have fun! The Editors Canada national conference takes place at the Crowne Plaza Gatineau–Ottawa from June 9–11.

“Being word-y people, we tried to think of what word could best sum up this year’s conference. Our pick is ’surprise’ — in the best sense of the word — because our conference will surprise you. We have two great keynote speakers and about 40 sessions, which will present lots of opportunities to learn about the latest views and practices in this extraordinary field of work, not to mention the chance to meet a diverse group of friendly and knowledgeable people. Join us!” 
— SUZANNE AND MARSHA, CO-CHAIRS, EDITORS CONFERENCE 2017

This year’s theme, Guardians of the Lexicons, promises to combine high-quality learning with plenty of word-nerdery. Keynote speakers include acclaimed Métis writer and editor, Cherie Dimaline, as well as John McIntyre, the smart and snarky night news editor at the Baltimore Sun. English and French sessions will cover editing and professional practices, language and culture, freelancing, self-publishing, and more. The conference is open to non-members and the editorially curious as well as members. Reduced rates available for students and some other professional organizations.

Registration is open until May 29, 11:59 PDT
