The Editors Canada conference committee is thrilled to announce the keynote speakers for the 2016 national conference in June.
We will open the proceedings with a keynote address from Mary Norris. Mary began working at The New Yorker in 1978, and has been a query proofreader at the magazine since 1993. She has written for "The Talk of the Town" section and for newyorker.com, where she is best known for her pieces on pencils and punctuation. Her first book is Between You and Me: Confessions of a Comma Queen (Norton).
We will close the conference with a keynote speech from Bill Walsh. Bill is a night copy editor at The Washington Post. He also blogs at The Slot, tweets as @TheSlot, and is the author of three books about language: Yes, I Could Care Less, The Elephants of Style, and Lapsing into a Comma.
We hope you're as excited as we are to see, hear, and meet these two industry leaders in person in June. They will both be selling and signing copies of their books while they're with us, so leave room in your suitcase for the trip home!
