E3: Pre-Conference Workshop

E3: Extreme Education for Editors

We are excited to announce something new for INANE 2019: a pre-conference workshop designed to help new editors become familiar with essential content for their role; more seasoned editors can also attend and brush up on their skills and knowledge. Organized by two experienced editors, Leslie Nicoll and Peggy Chinn, who are leaders in INANE, the workshop also features a host of well-experienced and highly qualified speakers who are eager to share their experience and knowledge with participants. Ample time for networking, questions, and discussion will be included in the schedule. Each participant will receive a copy of the third edition (newly revised) of The Editor’s Handbook, by Leslie Nicoll and Peggy Chinn, published by Lippincott. Continental breakfast and lunch are included in registration. Register early—this workshop is limited to 75 participants and will likely sell out!
