Events and calendar

Calendar of events

The Editors WA committee organises a calendar of events for the year. This includes opportunities for professional development as well as networking, business meetings and entertainment (such as the annual Christmas party). Descriptions for upcoming events on the calendar are under the heading Events on the right of this page (if past events only are listed, updates will be on their way).

General meetings are held at the The Warehouse Cafe, 221 Onslow Road, Shenton Park (map), except where specified.


View the 2017-2018 Calendar (PDF) with details from April 2017 to April 2018. You will see that events are scheduled several months in advance but, occasionally, some venue details or timings have yet to be confirmed.

Please be mindful that sometimes details can change at short notice. Check back frequently to ensure you’re up-to-date and don’t miss out. You can also stay connected on the Editors WA TwitterFacebook or LinkedIn accounts, or go to the Editors WA Home homepage for the latest news and posts.


Please note: As of 1 July 2016, registration for WA branch events must be made directly via the IPEd Events page, or through the IPEd MemNet member portal.

To book through the member portal, first log in, then use the Book Events button to go to an Events page. Either select an event from the the list on the lower part of the page, or use the date and event type options to filter and search for an event you would like to attend.
