May Freelance Lunch Report

The freelance lunch on a cool but sunny autumn day was a small gathering of 13, including several new faces. Topics of conversation covered the status of the editorial profession, the great variety of materials that editors work on, and how much we can or should ‘educate’ our clients in aspects of editing practice such as proofreading marks, which can be helpful but perhaps also arcane. There was also much talk of the upcoming accreditation exam on 25 June.

The Fitz Cafe is always an excellent venue for food, drinks and coffee, and they accommodate our fluctuating numbers with patience and warmth.

The next lunch is scheduled for Wednesday 27 July.
