HRM Lunch for Editors, April 29, 2019

Dear Folk,

Let’s get together and talk … editing, running your own business, life, conference, weather … anything that comes up!

We, Julia Cochrane and Alexandra Peace, are coming up from the Annapolis Valley to gather with HRM editors.

Won’t you join us?

We will be at Heartwood, 6250 Quinpool Road (careful, there are other locations) on Monday, April 29, 2019, from 11:30 am until 1:30 pm.

Do come if you can. And please let me know ( so I can make sure there’s a table waiting for us.


Editors Nova Scotia AGM 2019

Meet and mingle with your fellow editors. Editors Nova Scotia invites all those interested—members, lapsed members and non-members alike—to attend this annual general meeting. We’ll be discussing the events of the past year and what’s coming up, and soliciting your ideas, comments and suggestions. And we’ll be drawing for a door prize: a free Editors Canada recorded webinar. Those who can’t make it in-person are invited to join us virtually. (Yes, we have the power!) After the meeting we’ll head over to the Wooden Monkey for refreshments. Please RSVP to

Plain Language Workshop

Begin 2019 by learning new or refreshing current editing skills!

Plain Language for Editors is a hands-on workshop to help you make your clients’ writing clearer and more readable. The benefit to your practice? Stronger stylistic and structural editing skills, broader offerings to clients, and writing tailored to your stakeholders. Specifically, you will assess your audience, edit to meet their needs, and estimate the document’s success at meeting those needs.

During her 30 years as an editorial consultant with Communications Nova Scotia, presenter and plain language specialist Nicole Watkins-Campbell has edited everything from bookmarks to non-fiction books, including government reports, not-for-profit annual reports, and website text. She has written speeches, backgrounders for legislation, and promotional copy for concerts and other events.

Editors Nova Scotia hope you can join us for this afternoon of mental exercise!
