Sid Tafler on Editing  Sidjacketfinal

Date: Wednesday, October 1, 2014
Time: 7:00-8:45 pm
Place:  GVPL Central Branch
735 Broughton Street, Victoria, BC

Sid Tafler will speak about the editing process  – how to edit your own manuscript and when to engage a contract editor to improve your work.

He will show us the difference between conceptual editing and text editing, and why both are required on any work of writing.

Sid was Editor of Monday Magazine and a writer and copy editor at the Calgary Herald and the Canadian Press. He has designed and delivered courses in editing and writing at universities in BC and Alberta, served as Writer in Residence at the Festival of the Written Arts in Sechelt, B.C. and as a judge for  the B.C. Book Awards and the Western Magazine Awards. 

Perhaps you should consider submitting a piece to Island Writer – our twice-yearly collection from Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands.

Please arrive a little early so we can all settle in comfortably. We begin promptly at 7 o’clock because we must clear the library by nine sharp. The evening includes refreshments. VWS meetings are open and free to family, friends, and the general public.
