Previewing the 2015 Training Program

  • Print

As the new training officer, I'm putting together an exciting new program for 2015, with the return of some popular workshop staples plus some brand new courses for Editors Victoria.

Already confirmed, and coming up on 11 April, is the ever popular 'Dance Steps for the Self-Employed Editor' run by Editors Victoria President Jackey Coyle - this course is a must for any editor who is considering going freelance, and combines information, discussion and activities across the five essential elements of being successfully self-employed. Registrations open soon!

For the early-career editors, I'm delighted to welcome back freelance editor and former Editors Victoria president Susan Keogh, who will present her excellent 'Introduction to Copyediting' and 'Introduction to Structural Editing' workshops. Also making a comeback is 'Ebooks for Beginners' run by Lan Wang, an accredited editor who has extensive hands-on experience in using InDesign to publish to print, HTML, PDF and EPUB formats.

I'm also investigating a number of new courses for Editors Victoria, including 'How to Build a WordPress Website', 'Editing for the Web', and 'Legal Issues and Risk in Business'.

These, plus many more workshops, are still to be confirmed and will be added to the training calendar in the coming weeks, so please check back regularly!

Contact me if there are any other courses you would like Editors Victoria to run, or if you have any queries about upcoming training.
