How do you stand out in a sea of noise? Sometimes, it’s as simple as caring about your reader. Empathy, appreciation, compassion and a feeling of ‘we’re in this together’ come through in the way we edit. Can you help make your client’s voice heard above the rest?a
Learn the subtle and not-so-subtle ways to make your readers feel special at our Winter seminar on Saturday 22 August. Remember that it is not about how much information you give out to people. What matters is how much of it is understood.
Figure out your particular expertise by listening to our excellent speakers — Janet Applegate (information specialist), Dr Vivienne Conway (web), Dr Stephen White (science) and Dr Yusuke Fitzgibbons (editor as international intermediary). These sessions will help you succeed as an editor. As well, technical editor Rhonda Bracey’s session will help you increase your efficiency with Word. Check out Rhonda’s impressive credentials at www.cybertext.com.au.
This seminar is an opportunity to learn to pay attention to what readers need, what resources they are missing, and to your own expertise.
