Language Theory: What You're Really Editing Is the Person (en anglais)
Formateur : Dr. Michael Jones
Durée : 1 heure
Coût : 37.50 $ pour les membres, 50 $ pour les non-membres

Editors will always have difficult clients. Ours is a naturally prescriptive craft—we are paid to tell our clients what they are doing wrong. The difficulty, of course, is that our clients tend to not want to hear what they are doing wrong. Often, clients have powerful visceral reactions to having their writing edited. This webinar provides a brief survey of the current language theory that seeks to explain why and how something as simple as reordering a sentence can cause extreme reactions in our clients.

The key learning objectives of the webinar are to

  • review a brief survey of current language theory, and
  • learn how to apply current language theory concepts to interactions with clients in order to improve editor/client relationships.

Dr. Michael Jones works as an editor at the  Southern Alberta Institute of Technology in the Centre for Instructional Technology Development. He has worked as a writer, editor and professor for the past 20 years. He currently lives in Calgary, Alberta.

Getting work with the Online Directory of Editors (en anglais)
Formateur : Greg Ioannou
Durée : 45 minutes

Let's be frank: some people are getting a lot more work from their ODE listing than others are. Why do some people find big-ticket clients or get so much work from the ODE that they're swamped? What's their secret? Is it that they're super experienced, well-known or ... more qualified than YOU?

No!

Editors who are successfully using the ODE know how to craft their listings so they bring in more work. There really are "secrets" in this trade, and they aren't always intuitive. In this free webinar, we'll lift the veil on those secrets and show you how to make the most of an ODE listing.

When readers are confronted with wordy and inflated prose, they can easily miss or misinterpret the author's message—or they may give up reading the document altogether. As editors, one of our tasks is to ensure that authors write with clarity and precision instead of wandering into verbal "swamps."

In this two-part webinar, you'll learn how to identify and correct wordiness, repetition, inflated language, and weasel words. You'll also become familiar with the key components of plain language, good paragraphing, and bias-free writing.

Attention will also be given to imprecise words and incomplete expression, faulty or unclear antecedents, "smothered verbs," jargon/cliché, misused words, mixed metaphors, wobbling verb tense, and making sure that dialogue is appropriate to the characters who speak it.

You'll also have the opportunity to edit sentences and short passages taken from works of fiction and nonfiction, including corporate documents and children's fiction.

Kathryn Dean has edited and project-managed a wide variety of trade, educational, and corporate publications, including books by Pierre Elliott Trudeau, Robert Bateman, Mary Lou Finlay, Mordecai Richler, Terry O'Reilly, and Maude Barlow.

What's Wrong with This Sentence? (en anglais)
Formatrice : Melanie Scott
Durée : 1,5 heure
Coût : 56,25 $ pour les membres, 75 $ pour les non-membres

Correct usage of language is paramount to effective communication. The education system —from primary through post-secondary—does not offer students the tools needed for communicating effectively, whether verbally or in writing. The webinar is based on a workshop that was originally developed for the Canadian Authors' Association national conference, and has since been presented to numerous groups, from university professors to public relations experts to journalists. It returns to the basics of language: when and how to use “me,” “myself,” and “I”; clarifying appropriate adjectives and adverbs such as effective versus affective; avoiding split infinitives; the possessive apostrophe versus the contractive apostrophe; and dangling modifiers, among many other common usage issues.

The key concept of the webinar is that participants will gain (or possibly regain) a sense of the importance of correct usage of grammar and punctuation in the written and spoken word.

Melanie Scott is freelance writer and the editor of the Low Down to Hull and Back News, an award-winning community newspaper based in Wakefield, QC.
