Let’s Chat

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.

Monaghan West, 4th Floor
6140 Young Street, Halifax

Please RSVP to novascotia.twig@editors.ca by November 20. Also please inform us of any food allergies/sensitivities. We aim to please!

Editors Nova Scotia Annual General Meeting and Post-AGM Spring Social

Saturday, April 28, 2018, 4–6 p.m., with dinner to follow

The Monaghan*

6140 Young Street, Halifax

Come on out and we’ll reflect on the accomplishments of the past year, look forward to next year, and elect the new co-coordinators. We will address any concerns, hear your suggestions on what you’d like to see from Editors Nova Scotia, talk about upcoming events, and then go for dinner nearby.

Back by popular demand: Door prize draw for those who attend!

Even if you don’t live in Halifax, you can still attend the AGM using the wonders of technology. If you would like to join us online, contact us and we’ll give you all the details!

After the AGM, we will head over to Heartwood Hydrostone at 3061 Gottingen Street. Editors Nova Scotia will provide nibblies, but you’re on your own for drinks and dinner.

Please RSVP to novascotia.twig@editors.ca by Wednesday, April 25, 2018 (so we can print the documents and make a dinner reservation, or set you up with Zoom).

* The Monaghan is a high-rise apartment building. We’ll be gathering in the meeting room on the fifth floor. There is parking available in the lot in front of the building and on nearby Monaghan Street.
