Professional Development for Editors is Vital in Today's Work Climate

Professional development for 2015-16 … Redact has to be on top of your list.

Get your diaries and block out the weekend of 17 to 18 October 2015 and consider which professional development stream suits you:

  • manuscript assessment (fiction and nonfiction)
  • editing digital content
  • supercharging your business.

Redact is a weekend intensive workshop specifically for editors of two or more years' experience, organised by Editors Victoria. The Redact weekend is held in a residential setting with three streams of learning and up to 12 registrants in each stream.

Bookings will open in mid-July - stay tuned!
