The American Copy Editors Society is in big-time planning mode for its annual conference, March 31-April 2 in Portland, Ore. Since I’m a board member of ACES, I’m also in big-time planning mode.
I’ll be doing a session on fact-checking nontraditional sources, and we also have three other verification sessions planned. Plus a lot of great educational sessions on language sensitivity, stylebooks, freelancing and the business of editing, grammar and word usage, and dictionary panels.
This is the greatest word nerd conference in the United States (I am biased), and it’s possible 2016 might be our biggest ever in attendance. So if you’re thinking of attending, register soon.
