IPEd National Editors Conference


Event Date: 
8 May 2019 to 10 May 2019
Author / Presenters: 
Institute of Professional Editors (IPEd)

Susan Butler, lexicographer and former Macquarie Dictionary editor, is the first announced keynote speaker for the ninth IPEd National Editors Conference, to be held at the Pullman Melbourne on the Park (192 Wellington Parade), from 8–10 May 2019.

The conference is an exciting opportunity for editors and other publishing professionals, researchers, students and associates to connect, learn and celebrate best practice in editing and publishing. With a theme of Beyond the Page, there will be something for everyone: the conference will showcase current professional practice and research, highlighting emerging trends in editing and publishing across platforms as well as across the range of professional roles and modes in which editors contribute to the publishing process.

In addition to the formal and professional development aspects of the conference, there will be many opportunities to socialise and network, including a welcome cocktail party, the Gala Dinner, tours and (for the more introverted) an intimate breakfast, lunch and dinner gatherings.

Further keynotes and the full program will be announced over the coming months.
