Welcome to the Manitoba twig of Editors Canada!

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.

Title: Where's the Mustache?: Editing Graphic Novels
When: Monday, Septmeber 24, 2018 at 6:30pm
Where: University of Winnipeg, Room 1L08

Desirae Warkentin and Laura McKay, editors at Portage & Main Press/HighWater Press, have worked on titles such as Fire Starters (Jen Storm), Will I See? (David A. Robertson), and the forthcoming Surviving the City (Tasha Spillett) and This Place: 150 Years Retold (an anthology). In addition to editing fiction for HighWater Press, Desirae and Laura edit nonfiction teacher resources and work on various freelancing projects.
 
Learn about how graphic novels are created, from inception to publication. This presentation will provide a basic overview of editing graphic novels (text, mustaches, and all) and how the production process differs from more familiar formats. We will also touch on the Indigenous review process at HighWater Press.
