The return of the Great SocEds Quiz!

At last year’s Janus event, several members shared fond memories of the Great SocEds Quiz which was once a highlight of the annual Society of Editors dinner. The consensus was that we do this again.

Philip Blake will host a fiendishly tricky quiz devised by the wizardly Michael Cooke. Sharpen your wits and your general knowledge and join us.

Wednesday 15 November

National news

IPEd restructure

Following from the national vote, IPEd became a direct membership organisation on 1 July 2016. At our Special General Meeting, Tasmanian society members voted to become part of the new organisation. For more information, visit the IPEd website.

National Editors Directory

The Institute of Professional Editors has launched a new Editors Directory.

Please visit the Editors Directory to find a freelance editor with the appropriate skills, knowledge and experience for your assignment. When searching through the directory, you are encouraged to use the search function which allows you to search for an editor based on specific criteria.

The Editors Directory has been reviewed and a report submitted to IPEd Council. The Tasmanian freelance register will close shortly.

The next national conference, to be held in Melbourne in May 2019, has the theme ‘For the love of words…’. Mark your diary now!
