FLITUK – proud sponsors of the SfEP Conference 2016

1st September 2016 Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Google+ News

We’re proud to announce that we are sponsoring the 27th annual conference of the Society of Proofreaders and Editors (SfEP). At Freelancers in the UK we believe that all freelancers should strive to offer the most professional service possible, and the SfEP encourage this by promoting high editorial standards and offering first-class training to its members.

The conference will take place on Saturday 10 September to Monday 12 September at Aston University in Birmingham, and it enables SfEP members to develop their professional knowledge, keep up-to-date on developments in the publishing industry, and of course socialise and meet new people in the profession.

Taken from the SfEP website:

“Highlights of the programme this year include Susan Greenberg, senior lecturer at the University of Roehampton and author of Editors Talk about Editing, as Whitcombe lecturer; workshops and seminars on a range of topics, from using macros to analyse a text, to the basics of page design, to managing or mentoring other editors; and a closing lecture by the linguist and editor – and now honorary president of the SfEP – David Crystal. We’ll also be trying out some new ideas in the form of ‘live’ sessions and ‘speed’ sessions – links to full summaries of these and all other sessions can be found on the right of this page.”

If you are a proofreader and/or editor and would like to join the SfEP, please visit their website for more information. And if you’re already a member and you’re attending the conference, have a wonderful time!
