Meet the Instructors – Copy Editing II

Speaker

Elizabeth Macfie and Moira White team up to share their combined copy editing expertise on taking your skills to the next level at Copy Editing II.

Elizabeth has been a freelance proofreader and editor since 1997. After working as a coordinator of provincial park visitor services and then as a manager of adult education, she has chosen a career clarifying written communication. Her clients include federal government departments and agencies, book publishers, research organizations, and a university publications service. Elizabeth is an EAC-certified proofreader, copy editor and stylistic editor, a past chair of the Editors’ Association of Canada’s National Capital Region branch, and past president of the Indexing Society of Canada.

Moira entered the work world as a social worker and later moved into social policy. In both professions, she found that her organizational skills, attention to detail, and love of words were pointing her in a new direction—the world of editing. Currently a freelance editor, writer, and trainer with both public and private sector clients, she has decades of experience editing print and electronic publications. Moira is a director of professional standards for, and a past president of, the Editors’ Association of Canada.

When: March 10 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Registration closes March 5.
