Language Theory: What You're Really Editing Is the Person
Presenter: Dr. Michael Jones
Length: 1 hour
Language: English
Cost: $37.50 for members and $50 for non-members

Editors will always have difficult clients. Ours is a naturally prescriptive craft—we are paid to tell our clients what they are doing wrong. The difficulty, of course, is that our clients tend to not want to hear what they are doing wrong. Often, clients have powerful visceral reactions to having their writing edited. This webinar provides a brief survey of the current language theory that seeks to explain why and how something as simple as reordering a sentence can cause extreme reactions in our clients.

The key learning objectives of the webinar are to

  • review a brief survey of current language theory, and
  • learn how to apply current language theory concepts to interactions with clients in order to improve editor/client relationships.

Dr. Michael Jones works as an editor at the  Southern Alberta Institute of Technology in the Centre for Instructional Technology Development. He has worked as a writer, editor and professor for the past 20 years. He currently lives in Calgary, Alberta.

Let's be frank: some people are getting a lot more work from their ODE listing than others are. Why do some people find big-ticket clients or get so much work from the ODE that they're swamped? What's their secret? Is it that they're super experienced, well-known or ... more qualified than YOU?

No!

Attention will also be given to imprecise words and incomplete expression, faulty or unclear antecedents, "smothered verbs," jargon/cliché, misused words, mixed metaphors, wobbling verb tense, and making sure that dialogue is appropriate to the characters who speak it.

You'll also have the opportunity to edit sentences and short passages taken from works of fiction and nonfiction, including corporate documents and children's fiction.

Kathryn Dean has edited and project-managed a wide variety of trade, educational, and corporate publications, including books by Pierre Elliott Trudeau, Robert Bateman, Mary Lou Finlay, Mordecai Richler, Terry O'Reilly, and Maude Barlow.

What's Wrong with This Sentence?
Presenter: Melanie Scott
Length: 1.5 hours
Cost: $56.25 for members, $75 for non-members
Language: English

Correct usage of language is paramount to effective communication. The education system —from primary through post-secondary—does not offer students the tools needed for communicating effectively, whether verbally or in writing. The webinar is based on a workshop that was originally developed for the Canadian Authors' Association national conference, and has since been presented to numerous groups, from university professors to public relations experts to journalists. It returns to the basics of language: when and how to use "me," "myself," and "I"; clarifying appropriate adjectives and adverbs such as effective versus affective; avoiding split infinitives; the possessive apostrophe versus the contractive apostrophe; and dangling modifiers, among many other common usage issues.

The key concept of the webinar is that participants will gain (or possibly regain) a sense of the importance of correct usage of grammar and punctuation in the written and spoken word.

Melanie Scott is freelance writer and the editor of the Low Down to Hull and Back News, an award-winning community newspaper based in Wakefield, QC.

What Can Macros Do For You?
Presenter: Paul Beverley
Length: 1.5 hours
Language: English
Level: Introductory
Member price: $59.50
Non-Member price: $85

According to Google, macros are "a series of commands and instructions that you group together as a single command to accomplish a task automatically."

But that's way too narrow a definition. Microsoft Word macros are better described as "apps" and, like phone apps, macros do many different tasks. In this session, we'll look at what macros can do for editors.

  • Starting from an understanding of what we're trying to achieve as editors, we'll look at where and how macros can help to
    • identify inconsistencies early,
    • clear nitty-gritty errors by using automated find and replace, and
    • put markers in the text to point out potential problems to check as we read.
  • We'll look at a typical style sheet and see how macros can help us populate it.
  • We'll see what a macro looks like and how you can load one into your computer.
  • We'll get a feel for the wide range of different macros available for the various parts of an editor's job.

The session will aim to motivate you either to get started using macros or to help you see just what is possible with Microsoft Word macros.

After 20 years of editing, typesetting, proofreading and distributing his own monthly computer magazine, Paul Beverley started freelance proofreading, and then editing. He discovered Visual Basic and realized that even with his limited programming skill he could write computer programs (macros) to speed up the editing task. Ten years later, he has a bank of over 550 macros that he offers free to fellow editors via the internet, and he travels around the world (virtually and actually) offering these powerful tools to others. At age 69, he says, "This is the most satisfying job I've had in my whole career–editing is such an enjoyable process, especially when macros enable a faster and more effective job."

Is grammatical propriety your highest priority? Do you abhor rude language? Perhaps it's time to think different and ask what you should really give a damn about. Our job as editors is to make sure the text has the best effect on the intended audience. Sometimes that means breaking rules because the rules we're used to aren't the right rules for the game at hand. Let's look at what works when and why.

As a result of attending this session, attendees will have a more fully informed pragmatic understanding of applying and breaking the rules and standards of English for best effect.
