MEA Indexing workshop: Nov 30, 2010


The MEA is organizing an Intro to Indexing workshop on November 30th, via Skype. Renowned editor and indexer Heather Ebbs will be sharing her expertise with us. Heather is the current instructor of Indexing: Theory and Application for the University of California Berkeley Extension Program, is a past winner of the Tom Fairley award for editorial excellence, and is a past president of both the Editors’ Association of Canada and the Indexing Society of Canada. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from the best!

Please reply to meaworkshops@gmail.com if you’re interested.

CLARIFICATION re. tech requirements: This INDEXING workshop will take place at Herzing College where Skype is available to us in a classroom. All you need to participate is an interest in indexing and a willingness to learn from an expert who will teach us over the Internet through Skype. The technology is cool; the topic is fascinating (haven’t you ever wondered who the clever person is who creates that fantastic index at the back of the book you’re reading?); and the evening will be both informative and fun. Join us for this MEA ‘first’: a technology-mediated workshop.
