About the Saturday Workshop

The queen of speed editing, Linda Oestreich, has returned to host a workshop.

Learn how you can survive in a world where technical editing often is ignored and devalued, how to be seen as a professional, and how to add value to your company while you maintain integrity, skills, and passion for your work.

The workshop includes discussions and exercises to help you embrace levels and types of edit, toolbox contents, attitudes for success, Quick overview of copy and comprehensive edits, and basic principles that we’ve often forgotten. Editing is all about quality in a product. Learn how to do it better, sell it to your bosses and clients, and be proud of the job you do.
