Editors Saskatchewan offers two workshops each year: one in the fall and one in the spring. They are taught by experienced instructors and have been well received. Workshops we’ve offered in the past have covered core skills like copy editing and proofreading, and well-known courses like Jim Taylor’s Eight-Step Editing, as well as other useful subjects, such as plain language and creating content for the web.

- Structural + Substantive = Stylistic
November 2, 2015 at the Western Development Museum
Substantive editing brings order to chaos and breathes life into moribund manuscripts. By reorganizing and revising, you can help authors reach their readers effectively. But facing a disorganized, incomplete (or overstuffed!) document can be daunting.
This workshop will include strategies and techniques for:
- assessing material
- identifying problem areas
- creating solutions
- working with the author
- estimating time and cost
Whether you edit reports, trade non-fiction manuscripts, newsletters, journal articles, manuals, or websites, this workshop can enhance your substantive editing skills.
We often meet casually, either at noon or in the evening, to discuss some aspect of working as an editor. These events are free and open to members and non-members.
