Not only in Canada, eh? International editing
There’s a whole world out there in need of editors. Curious? Three panelists, moderated by Anne Brennan, will share their experiences of working for international clients, hiring international team members, grappling with editorial styles, marketing their services and—of course—getting paid.
Theresa Best has over 15 years of publishing experience. She spent several years as an editor at the UK’s statutory body for education. Also, she worked as a commissioning editor at Routledge Education and an editor at Guardian News & Media, publisher of the Guardian newspaper. She teaches editing at SFU.
Anne Brennan, CPE, worked in-house for 25 years, mostly as a managing editor for magazines, websites and distance learning materials, before going freelance in 2008. Now she edits educational, technical and corporate material, develops websites and manages projects.
Eva van Emden is a freelance editor with a background in biology and computer science. She has worked for clients in the United States, Europe and Asia, editing magazines, academic papers, grant proposals and self-published books, as well as doing the occasional translation.
Carol Zhong edits journal articles for academics in Hong Kong and Europe and manuscripts for a university press in Hong Kong. Before becoming an editor, she taught ESL and English in Canada and China, was a lexicographer for Longman in the UK and edited in-house at the Open University of Hong Kong.
