Hard Day's Journey into Technical Editing

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

By attending this workshop, you will gain knowledge, expertise, and ammunition for defending your art, for providing value to your company, and for proving that you can and do affect your company's bottom line. Learn tactics and techniques to be better at what you do, while you learn enough about your skill and its history to truly be considered an expert in your own right. In today's world of tools and technology, how do the basic skills of technical editing fit in? Where and when can we depend on tools to help us with our craft, and how can we get better at what we do as we prove our value and show the results our input can bring?
Proposed schedule includes definitions, tools, basic mechanics, types/levels of edit, copy and comprehensive editing techniques, value and quality, the art of writing comments to wow your writers, and a view to the future of technical editing.
Come to this day-long, intensive, discussion and exercise-rich offering to get answers to these and other questions you bring with you! 

Additional rates apply for this preconference workshop.
