IPEdConf 2017

Whatever your editing interest, there’s a workshop to suit at the IPEd national conference in Brisbane.

Workshops will be held on Wednesday 13 September at the Brisbane Exhibition and Convention Centre at Southbank. Earlybird workshop rates apply until 13 July.

The workshop schedule includes Dr Lisa Lines’s class on how to use IPEd’s Guidelines for Editing Research Theses in a changing tertiary environment, including identifying the line between copyediting and rewriting a thesis for a student writing in English as a second (or third) language.

Belinda Pollard will impart her tips on how to make a tangible imprint in the virtual world. Her workshop will help you navigate social media, work out how to attract your ideal customer and tweak your online presence.

Hilary Cadman will present a workshop on EndNote for editors to help academic editors, and those interesting in getting into the field, learn about the fundamentals of the referencing software. EndNote is commonly used by researchers to capture their publication outputs and source material.

Jackey Coyle’s workshop will introduce the five segments that you need to consider in running your editing business as a sustainable part of your life. Managing this way means doing the work as effectively as possible, maximising your systems and resources, and allocating budget and time for your marketing, finance, and professional development. 

Ann Bolch will show workshop participants how a fresh set of eyes can take a new view of a manuscript, identify the missing pieces and help your author add more flesh to their story through manuscript development. This workshop is particularly useful for editors of fiction.
