2021 editors conference a great success
30 June 2021
I’ve just spent the last two days at IPEd’s 2021 conference, Editing on the Edges.
I learned a lot about editing in relation to: accessibility; translations into English; cultural safety and sensitivity; creating an online community around your niche specialty; the ‘boundaries’ we set when editing; editing and diversity or how to promote and support diversity, as an editor; and other ‘edgy’ editing topics. The conference started off with a day of workshops; followed by two days of seminars (webinars) and Q&A sessions.
A big thank you to IPEd and Editors Tasmania who organised this editors conference, the presenters and all my colleagues who participated.
