Workshop: Copy Editing
September 10, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 pm
Copy editors are more than just a human spell check. A good copy editor is a critical thinker with an eye for detail who can retain a writer’s voice—or know when a writer needs help defining their voice—while ensuring style, consistency, and proper grammar usage. Join writer and editor Conan Tobias for a copy editing boot camp that will sharpen your game by:
- Detailing how copy editing relates to other parts of the copy flow
- Looking at common mistakes and problem areas
- Sharing tips for staying editing a piece when you don’t know where to start
- Encouraging a group discussion on timely topics, such as ensuring accuracy and sensitivity when writing about gender
Conan Tobias is the editor-in-chief and publisher of Taddle Creek, the executive director of the Doug Wright Awards for Canadian cartooning, and a freelance writer and editor.
