Editors Directory

Listing on the IPEd Editors Directory is open to all professional members and costs only $40 per year, which is great value. Once you’ve subscribed, you can add your details to the online listing. In addition to basic contact information and links to your website, you can describe your services, special interests, experience, work portfolio, qualifications, and computing and software skills.

As I mentioned at the Editors Victoria AGM, Elizabeth Spiegel (from Tasmania) reviewed the IPEd Editors Directory in July. Her report has been submitted to IPEd Council and we hope to hear soon about any proposed improvements to the functioning of the directory.

In the meantime, we are keeping the Editors Victoria Freelance Register open until 31 December 2017, but as is – no updates and no new entries.

Freelance Get-togethers

After breaking new ground with an afternoon cake and coffee get-together at Sun Moth in the CBD in July, we returned to lunch at The Fitz café in October, with 13 new and regular attendees. The next event will be held on or around Tuesday 12 December; details to follow and bookings will open mid-November.
