Seminars: They're Worth the Investment

When was the last time you invested in your career? Whether we work freelance or in-house, continuing professional development helps us all become better editors. Having recent workshops and seminars on your CV shows employers that you're committed to continuous learning. It also gives you a chance to meet people who are at different stages of their careers, which creates new learning opportunities for everyone, and builds your network of contacts. 

Have a look at our line-up of seminars. Consider learning more about a type of editing that's outside of your normal responsibilities, or brush up on something you already know. You're worth the investment!

Editors Ottawa–Gatineau has built its reputation as a trusted source of quality training: its instructors are seasoned editors and writers whose workshops engage participants through discussion and hands-on exercises and equip them with invaluable communication skills.

Our teaching advantage is smaller groups that interact with the instructor and other participants to enhance the learning experience and share information.
