You're going to love this one.
...a co-hosted forum of Bay Area Editors' Forum (BAEF) with our friends of Editorial Freelancers Association (EFA).
We're celebrating publication of the revised The Copyeditor's Handbookand we tingle with anticipation.
Forthcoming in May 2019 from the University of California Press:
Amy Einsohn and Marilyn Schwartz, The Copyeditor's Handbook: A Guide for Book Publishing and Corporate Communications, 4th ed. Revised, Updated, and Expanded
Erika Bűky, Marilyn Schwartz, and Amy Einsohn, The Copyeditor's Workbook: Exercises and Tips for Honing Your Editorial Judgment
Join us with author Marilyn Schwartz, former UC Press editor of Amy Einsohn's The Copyeditor's Handbook. In a labor of love and with explorer spirit, Marilyn has culled Amy's notes, infused her own savvy perspective for expansion, and now renders us an appealing, fresh reference book. Marilyn will tell us about the genesis of Amy's original HANDBOOK; the behind-the-scenes process of subsequent editions, and the creation of the new WORKBOOKand how they parallel changes in publishing and in the practice of copyediting. Plus a few things one learns by walking a mile in an author's shoes.
We'll also hear from Erika Bűky, who collaborated with Marilyn to create the WORKBOOK. Fortunately for us, we could schedule this forum when Erika will be in town from her home in New Zealand.
UC Press is graciously offering our active members a purchase discount for this new edition. Details to follow.
Come at 6:00 pm to chat and snack with friendly fellow members. Who knows, you may win a fabulous door prize. Discussion starts at 6:30 pm. Hope to see you there!
