Take a Local Program

EAC Saskatchewan hosts a variety of professional development opportunities on topics of interest to editors, writers, and communicators.

Workshops

Look in the calendar for green coloured events.
EAC Saskatchewan offers two workshops each year: one in the fall and one in the spring. They are taught by experienced instructors and have been well received. Workshops we’ve offered in the past have covered core skills like copy editing and proofreading, other useful subjects like creating content for the web and plain language, and well-known courses like Jim Taylor’s Eight-Step Editing. If you would like more information, email saskatchewan@editors.ca.

Other Programs

Look in the calendar for blue coloured events.
We often meet casually, either at noon or in the evening, to discuss some aspect of working as an editor. These events are free and open to members and non-members.

Special Events

Look in the calendar for orange coloured events.
Our branch hosts an annual reception that features the Karen Virag Memorial Lecture. Everyone on our email list is invited to attend. We also participate in local events, such as Word on the Street, and occasionally collaborate with other like-minded organizations.

Reap the Benefits

Here are some of the benefits of being part of EAC Saskatchewan:

  • Benefit from local networking.
  • Take advantage of discounted rates for EAC Saskatchewan workshops and other professional development opportunities.
  • Get a discount on McNally’s Reader Reward Card. EAC Saskatchewan is one of McNally Robinson’s Partners in Culture, which means our members can purchase the Reader Reward Card for $10 instead of $25. The card entitles you to a 10% discount on all regularly priced books and merchandise (in-store and online), as well as a 10% discount in the restaurant. You will also receive McNally Robinson’s print newsletter, which highlights great new books and keeps you informed of the literary scene in Manitoba and Saskatchewan.
  • Get job opportunities delivered right to your inbox from our job hotline.

And then there are all the other benefits of belonging to a national association of professional editors!
