BAEF / EFA | Celebrate the Release of The Copyeditor’s Handbook

Co-Hosted/Organized by: Bay Area Editors’ Forum and the Editorial Freelancers Association

We’re celebrating publication of the revised The Copyeditor’s Handbook from the University of California Press:

Join us with author Marilyn Schwartz, former UC Press editor of Amy Einsohn’s The Copyeditor’s Handbook. In a labor of love and with explorer spirit, Marilyn has culled Amy’s notes, infused her own savvy perspective for expansion, and now renders us an appealing, fresh reference book. Marilyn will tell us about the genesis of Amy’s original HANDBOOK; the behind-the-scenes process of subsequent editions, and the creation of the new WORKBOOK—and how they parallel changes in publishing and in the practice of copyediting. Plus a few things one learns by walking a mile in an author’s shoes.

We’ll also hear from Erika Bűky, who collaborated with Marilyn to create the WORKBOOK. Fortunately for us, we could schedule this forum when Erika will be in town from her home in New Zealand.

Come at 6:00 pm to chat and snack with friendly fellow members. Who knows, you may win a fabulous door prize. Discussion starts at 6:30 pm.
