From 1 July 2016, Editors Victoria became a branch of the Institute of Professional Editors (IPEd). Editors who were members of the Editors Victoria at 1 July 2016 have had their membership transferred to IPEd.

The Editors Victoria branch will support editors in Victoria and continue to run activities for members such as regular meetings, networking events and professional development programs. We will continue to host a branch website, produce a branch newsletter and maintain our social media accounts [links].

Editors Victoria is Australia's oldest and largest association for professional editors. It has more than 500 full and associate members, including in-house and freelance editors, editing program students, and other people generally interested in the editing and publishing industries.

Editors Victoria aims to:

  • help establish and maintain high standards of editing
  • promote the exchange of ideas and sharing of information about editing
  • encourage contact among members
  • liaise with other organisations in all matters affecting editors as a group.

The everyday running of Editors Victoria is managed by an executive committee elected by members each year at the annual general meeting. New committee members are always welcome, and you don't have to wait until the AGM to join - simply e-mail us and register your interest.

Editors Victoria is a branch of the Institute of Professional Editors (IPEd), the national association for Australian editors. IPEd's role is to advance the profession of editing and to support and promote Australian editors.
