Join us on February 27 for a STEM editing #EditorsChat

To stay competitive in an increasingly complex and innovative world, Canadians are being encouraged to enter the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields. Whatever the field, whenever content is created, editors are needed to refine that content and improve communication.

How can you use your interest in science and technology to be a STEM editor?

Editors are subject matter experts. Technical editors may have studied in their chosen field. Medical editors, for example, may have a science degree. How can you parlay this education and experience into an editing career in an industry on the rise?

Join us on Twitter on Monday, February 27, at 2 p.m., EST (11 a.m., PST), for our next #EditorsChat.

Guest speakers

  • Suzanne Purkis (editor and communications expert specializing in the academic, medical and non-profit sectors)
  • Margaret Shaw (scientific and technical editor, writer and researcher with 21 years of professional experience, an MSc, and a writing and editing diploma)
  • Kara Stahl (medical editor with expertise in pharmaceutical and medical editing, including continuing medical education and advisory/consultancy work)
