Redact Is Back for 2013!


10-11 August 2013

Our weekend intensive residential course for qualified editors with at least two years' experience working in the profession is on again!

Redact 2013 will take place over two action-packed days in August, at the Bellinzona Resort, Hepburn Springs in the Daylesford region of Victoria.

This year, the exciting program will comprise three strands on the following topics:

  • Fiction editing with Mandy Brett
  • ePublishing with Sarah Fletcher (née Hazleton)
  • Editorial project management with Kirstie Innes-Will and Niki Horin

Registrations open just after midnight (at 12:01 am on 21 May), and early bird bookings close on Sunday 30 June. Places are strictly limited, so book early!

Places, and preferences for the three strands, will be allocated  strictly on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Emails will be processed strictly in order of receipt after bookings open.

The form is fillable, but if you have trouble returning the document itself by email, you can return it by snail mail -- but please email to say you have posted it, and state your preferred streams. That will settle any uncertainty about order of receipt of bookings.  

Send you registration, or any enquiries, to:


What past Redact participants said

"Everything to do with fiction editing was fascinating and valuable. I would have loved to have picked the presenter's and other colleagues' brains for hours."

"I enjoyed working with fantastically stimulating writing samples, manuscripts and editorial documents."

"The best aspect was hearing about other ways of doing things that I may not have thought of or had previous exposure to."

"I very much enjoyed the sessions. The presenter was very approachable and flexible and led the discussion without ever being overbearing. Each of us were encouraged to contribute."

"Enjoyed the collaborative project-style method of working on a theoretical book. Lots of enthusiasm and more understanding of the pitfalls and benefits of the project."

"Excellent teaching - inclusive but decisive and directive as needed. Very thoughtful preparation."

"Good mix of in-house/freelance and very experienced/less experienced participants made it stimulating and valuable - certainly for me, probably for everyone."
