Introduction

We start the year full of plans and activities, with members’ responses to both the training and communication surveys stimulating ideas and new directions for 2017. The events team have also got 2017 planned – beginning with a dinner meeting on 15 February with commissioning editor and writer Angela Meyer as our guest. Freelance lunches are also getting underway, with the first on Wednesday 1 February.

On the professional front, the Victorian Auditor-General’s Office is looking for expressions of interest from Accredited Editors for casual work in preparing reports for the Victorian Parliament. Details are in this newsletter. We also update news on the 2017 IPEd National Editor’s Conference, Advancing Our Profession.

There’s a review of Geoff Hart’s book Effective Onscreen Editing, and a handy summary of all the things that influence ‘how much does an editor cost?’. Even if you already know, you may find the article worth sharing with prospective clients. Plus we have the usual snippets, links and updates.

Our next newsletter will come out at the start of March. 

Happy reading!
