Structural Editing Workshop

A new year is a good time to take stock of skills and practices and think about new approaches to professional development. We’ve been talking to Calgary-area editors about what they want from their twig, and top of the list has been more workshops and seminars.

So we’re starting 2017 with a workshop on Structural Editing, taught by West Coast Editorial Association’s Ruth Wilson.


After completing this workshop, participants will know

  • How to assess a manuscript to identify structural issues
  • How to use an outline to reveal structure
  • What questions to ask when analyzing problems
  • How to avoid over editing and respect the writer’s work
  • How graphics and design can support structural editing decisions
  • Why diplomacy can be just as important as editorial skill
  • How to estimate how long editing will take

The workshop will be held on Friday, February 10, 2017, from 9am-4pm, at CommunityWise Resource Centre (the Old Y) in downtown Calgary. For more details on the workshop and on Ruth Wilson, visit the twig’s website. Early bird pricing ends on January 27; discounts are available for CAFE/PWAC members and for students.
