FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Toronto, November 12, 2014—The Editors' Association of Canada (EAC) has announced it will host the first international conference of editors. Editing Goes Global takes place June 12–14, 2015, at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, and will feature speakers from the US, the UK, Ireland, New Zealand and Canada.

2015 marks the first year EAC and similar organizations from around the world will partner for an unparalleled weekend of international networking, learning and fun. Editing Goes Global will feature opportunities to mix and mingle, and to learn from expert presenters and panelists. Speakers and attendees will represent both print and online publishing, as well as government, corporate, non-profit, writing and communication experts.

"We're excited to partner with the global editing and writing community," says Greg Ioannou, Editing Goes Global chair. "We're giving people the chance to meet in person the experts they're already following online."

"If there's one EAC conference every editor or writer should attend, it's Editing Goes Global. There may never be a better networking opportunity than this."
