IN OCTOBER (QUEBEC CITY): “Professional Editors: What do they eat in Winter?”

Dinner & Discussion, hosted by France Brûlé

Date: Thursday, October 24, 2019
Time: 6:00 to 9:00 p.m.
Location: Restaurant Momento (2480 chemin Sainte-Foy, Quebec City)
Public transit: Métrobus 807
Cost: $40 for non-members and $30 for members (includes 3-course meal, taxes and tip)

What is an editor? What role does an editor play? What can we expect from such a language expert? How can an editor meet client expectations within imposed deadlines and budgets? How can the feeling of accomplishment be reconciled with mandates that focus solely on the "prescriptive" aspect? These are some of the questions that will feed the discussion led in French by France Brûlé, an experienced editor who has long reflected on the subject, especially while preparing her master’s thesis.

Come and talk with other professionals over a good meal! This first Dinner & Discussion organized by Editors Québec in the Vieille Capitale will be an opportunity to reflect on the craft of editing in a convivial setting.

Confirm your presence by Monday, October 21, 2019 (spaces limited).
