In December, we presented our most popular webinar yet: "Getting work with the Online Directory of Editors." How popular was it? We had so many registrants for this free webinar that we surpassed the maximum number of attendees allowed by our provider and had to add a second session just to accommodate everyone.

Did you miss this live event? No worries! We've shared the 30-minute video recording on YouTube. Watch it now! https://youtu.be/_G6aH1YSlMc

It's our time to shine
It is often said that editing is an invisible art. But that doesn't mean great editors should hide in the shadows. Help us shine a spotlight on great editing by submitting a nomination for the 2016 Tom Fairley Award for Editorial Excellence. http://www.editors.ca/news/submit-your-nomination-2016-tom-fairley-award-editorial-excellence

C'est l'occasion de briller
On dit souvent que la révision est un art invisible. Mais cela ne veut pas dire que les excellents réviseurs doivent se terrer dans l'ombre. Aidez-nous à mettre en valeur des réviseurs remarquables en proposant une candidature pour le prix d'excellence Tom-Fairley 2016. http://www.reviseurs.ca/nouvelles/proposez-une-candidature-pour-le-prix-dexcellence-tom-fairley-2016

"We're copyeditors: we live to edit things. We're horrified when we have to leave something we see as wrong. But sometimes the situation demands that we do." https://www.copyediting.com/choosing-not-edit/

"The editorial relationship is so important. The trust thing is huge. You're laying your life on the line, almost. It's so embarrassing how intimate the act of writing can be, how much it means to the writer, the words on the page. And it's so humiliating and mortifying, too, to see your own crappy writing under the microscope, to have to talk about it, and hopefully fix it. A great editor, like Louise, understands that."
