We’re delighted to announce that as a celebration of 30 years of excellence in editing, the Professional Editors’ Guild (PEG) will be staging an online conference next year.
This stellar event in the world of publishing, editing, writing and proofreading will be headlined with the principal theme ‘Professional Editing in the Digital Age’. The online programme will run from the afternoon of Wednesday, 31 May and throughout the day on Thursday, 1 June 2023. It will include many virtual networking and social opportunities, including post-conference activities in the evenings.
From a small informal group of editors intent on exchanging ideas about matters editorial, PEG has gone from strength to strength, with many achievements to celebrate, all in the service of its members. Please diarise these dates. Registration will open early in 2023.
Please consider presenting at the conference The many challenges inherent in editing and proofreading in a digital age have given rise to a plethora of practical and imaginative solutions.
