Happy summer, readers!
The Editors’ Weekly is taking a break for the rest of August. It’s time to enjoy the last weeks of summer — and of summer reading! Have you read any great books lately? This summer, I set myself a goal of reading only Canadian literature, and it’s been fantastic! (Need a good book? Check out my #CanLitSummer recommendations.)
We’ll be back with new Editors’ Weekly content in September — and your name could be on the byline!
Write for The Editors’ Weekly
Do you have insights to share about editing? Whether you’re a brand new editor or a seasoned professional, your reflections could help others in the industry.
Posts for The Editors’ Weekly should be related to the work of editors, but that can take many forms. Here are some examples of topics that have been covered this year:
- “Editing Indigenous Writing: A Nuanced Partnership”
- “Freelancing While Parenting Young Kids”
- “Leading a Team in a Corporate Workplace”
- “The Radical Role of Developmental Editing”
