Only 134 more sleeps! From June 7 to 9, editors, writers, indexers and other lovers of language will converge on the Lord Nelson Hotel in Halifax for EAC's annual conference.
Our theme this year is "Between the lines / Entre les lignes." We chose this because it relates to the practice of editing and it connects directly to many of the conference workshops. Editors read the lines authors have written and correct obvious errors in spelling, grammar, punctuation and more. They also read between the lines of text and suggest changes that help authors communicate their message more clearly. Painstaking listening, reading and revising, accompanied by careful inferences, are part of the everyday work of editors.
We hope you'll join us as we explore what lies between the lines. Visit the Conference 2013 website to learn more about the annual conference and all the workshops and activities we have planned.
