I’m the guest on the American Copy Editors Society Twitter chat today (4 p.m. Eastern) and I’ll be talking about tips for spotting the red flags in copy. So I thought I’d post a download here to the PowerPoint of a presentation I made on that subject at the ACES national conference this past April.On a side note, because I moderate the #ACESchat, being a guest as well might be a bit tricky. I’ll try to keep the glitches at a minimum. I’ve been moderating the chat for 2 1/2 years and this is the first time I’ve thought about being the guest — but it’s a good topic we haven’t covered and one I’ve been doing academic work on.
The chats are great ways to get together with other copy editors (without leaving home), share tips and ideas, and even blow off steam about the profession. Follow them by searching for the hashtag #ACESchat on Twitter or check out some old ones on my Storify page.
