Editors Canada – Manitoba

Welcome to the Manitoba Twig of Editors Canada!

We're a friendly group of professionals and students who work with language in communications, printing, publishing and digital media. We usually meet the last Monday evening of the month to talk about grammar, usage, style, punctuation, language resources and more, and to build connections among professional editors in Manitoba and those who need their services.

As a twig of Editors Canada, we welcome local members and interested non-members to join us for networking, socializing and professional development opportunities. Add your name to our mailing list or follow us on social media to find out about upcoming events.
