Of Interest: Call for Speakers – CIDM Summer Conference on Judicious Editing

Judicious Editing— July 24-25, 2018

On the heels of the IDEAS Winter 2018 conference, Writing Well, comes Judicious Editing, the IDEAS Summer 2018 conference. It doesn’t matter how good your writing skills are, you can always benefit from another set of eyes. Whether performed by a peer, a professional, or you yourself, editing is a critical phase of the publication process. It helps to validate accuracy, confirm readability, improve usability, and enforce conformance to corporate standards. Nevertheless, the review and approval phases of a project are often compromised as we struggle with differing opinions, changing feedback, and condensed timelines.

What can you do to make the editing and review process as painless as possible? What should editors be looking for and what can writers do to better prepare their content for editing in the first place? What role do automated quality checkers serve in the process? What do you do when reviewers disagree? Join us for the answers to these questions and more!
