WHO WE ARE
We are the Saskatchewan branch of the Editors' Association of Canada (EAC), the national professional association for Canadian editors. EAC has about 1,600 members; ours is the youngest branch, boasting just over 30 members. We present monthly programs and semi-annual workshops on topics of interest to editors, writers, and communicators.
For over 30 years EAC has provided professional support for working editors and has contributed to all aspects of business, educational, government, and corporate publishing.
Editors can help you say what you mean. They work on everything from ad copy and short business and corporate documents to full-length annual reports, books, and complex websites. Whether you are developing content or polishing your project, an editor can help you make your message clear, correct, and appropriate.
Evening programming will be held the third Monday of every month, starting at 7pm, in the Jessie Miller room of St James' Anglican church, 609 Dufferin Ave, Saskatoon.

It is reasonable for you to ask to see a résumé, work samples, and references. It is also a good idea to provide a sample of your document or project for estimating purposes. If you've narrowed down your choice to two or three editors and can't decide, you may wish to pay each to edit a short sample of your materials and choose the candidate who most suits your needs.
