The Editors Canada conference committee is now inviting session proposals for our first in-person conference since 2019. Editors Canada Conference 2023 will be held in Toronto, Ontario, from June 17 to 18, at Toronto Metropolitan University.
The conference committee welcomes presentations and workshops related to one of the four streams:

  • Business of editing — sessions that help members conduct and grow their business. Examples: where and how to find work, contracts, work-life balance, markets and expanding services.
  • Editing, society and diversity — sessions about how editors can encourage storytelling that changes our world and how language can be used as a tool for inclusivity. Examples: climate change, racism, social inequities, appropriation, language that reduces marginalization.
  • Foundations of editing — sessions on the basic and not-so-basic skills that editors need to do their work. Examples: key aspects of different kinds of editing, special considerations for editing in different fields and genres, what you wish you knew when you first started editing.
  • Tools and technology — sessions about how editors can use current and emerging technology and tools. Examples: productivity tools, bookkeeping and editing programs, creating a healthy workspace and genre-specific tools and techniques.

Sessions can be offered in English, French or both. Sessions will be one hour long, including time for introductions, breakout discussions or other activities, and Q&A.
If you have an idea for a session, please complete and submit the session proposal form.
All completed proposals must be received by 11:59 p.m. ET, Friday, January 20, 2023.

The speaker coordinators will evaluate every proposal and inform applicants of their decisions by February 17, 2023.
