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.

Dates and Programs for 2019

Monday, January 28 at 7pm

Title: Looking Your Best as an Editor: Style Sheets
When: Monday, January 28 at 7:00pm
Where: The University of Winnipeg, Room 1L07
Rates: $5 for Editors Canada and Manitoba Editors' Association members and $10 for non-members

Keeping a style sheet is an essential task for almost every editing project. In this workshop we will discuss

  • editorial style, style guides, and style sheets
  • who and what a style sheet is for
  • what to include and what not to include on a style sheet

There will also be an opportunity to practise your style sheet skills.

Maureen Epp has over 12 years’ experience as a freelance editor for publishers and individual authors. She has worked with a variety of editorial style guides and is on a permanent quest to improve her own style sheets.
