There's no need to read between the lines. Registration is now open for the event of the year, the Editors' Association of Canada's 2013 conference, Between the Lines, June 7–9. Register now!

This year's event in Halifax will include pre-conference workshops to warm you up, conference sessions to engage and inspire, the illustrious Robert MacNeil to get you thinking, and a gala banquet to fete you in fine style—all set against the backdrop of the Atlantic Ocean.

The Lord Nelson Hotel in the heart of downtown Halifax is the perfect venue for an inspirational weekend of learning and socializing.

Three-day super-conference

We're happy to announce we've teamed up again this year with the Indexing Society of Canada (ISC).  You'll have the option to take in three full days of career-building opportunities, networking and fun.

Registration discount

And (as if you really needed another reason to register) members of EAC, ISC, the Canadian Authors Association (CAA) and the Writers' Federation of Nova Scotia (WFNS) benefit from discounted registration fees. What's more, with early-bird pricing in effect until April 12, members can take advantage of even deeper discounts. Register now!

Travel discount

Flying is also more affordable thanks to a 15% discount offered by Porter Airlines—and this is on top of any seat sales.
