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 firstname.lastname@example.org
Nova Scotia Twig co-coordinators, Jamie and Margo, have been making plans for the membership. We’d like to share our ideas with you at an informal gathering, where we can invite your thoughts and comments. Lunch and beverages will be provided. (BYOB if you like—it’s a social.)
In addition, new member Jena Parsons will give a presentation on search engine optimization. Explore how to write and edit content to boost SEO online. This session will help you and your clients get noticed on the web. You will learn how to:
identify how readers interact with online content
conform content to google algorithms
build basic SEO skills
use SEO skills to make yourself more marketable.
And Margaret MacQuarrie will walk us through the vexations of editing PDFs in Adobe Acrobat.
We’re really looking forward to welcoming our new members, catching up with not-new ones, and exchanging info and ideas with everyone. We’ll be able to hook you up digitally if you can’t attend in person—let us know if you want to join us this way.
