Upgrade Your House Style: Anti-Oppressive Copy-Editing

March 29 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

This three-hour workshop will be split into two parts. In the first part, writer and editor andrea bennett will explore principles and themes in anti-oppressive copy-editing, including building collaborative relationships with writers, and navigating current copy-editing best practices around race, sex, gender, sexual orientation, Indigeneity and colonialism, disability, and substance use and addiction.

The second part of this workshop will be collaborative. Workshop attendees are asked to submit real-world examples of thorny questions or situations that have come up while they are copy-editing, so that we can puzzle through them together as a group. This could include anything from word usage, to strategizing on how to repair a copy-editing interaction with a writer that went awry.
