Join our first Twitter chat on October 6

We're hosting our first-ever Twitter chat next week, and we want you to tweet with us!

What's a Twitter chat?

Twitter chats are live, hour-long online discussions about fun and informative topics of common interest.

With Twitter chats, we'll have one more way to communicate with members and affiliates, and for you to communicate with one another as well.

How do they work?

We'll have a set topic of discussion for each chat.

All participants will use the common hashtag #EditorsChat so the chatter is filtered together into a single conversation.

Each chat is led by a host and guest speakers (ahem…tweeters, but never twits!), who will answer your questions.

Our first Twitter chat takes place next Tuesday

Join us on Tuesday, October 6, at 2 p.m. EDT, for a Certification Q&A and Study Tips chat. Not sure if you're ready to take a certification test? Have other questions about Editors' Association of Canada certification? Ask the certification experts. Anne Brennan and Jeanne McKane, co-chairs of the certification steering committee, will join Jenny Govier, a Certified Copy Editor and Certified Proofreader, to answer all your questions live on Twitter.

Once the new Editors Canada website is updated and launched later this year, we'll create a web page with a schedule of upcoming Twitter chats and an archive of the discussions. For now, we invite you join us as the conversations unfold by following the #EditorsChat hashtag starting next Tuesday.
