Editors Victoria: Editing Diverse Voices

Editors Victoria is running a workshop on editing diverse voices.

The Australian publishing landscape is always changing, and editors must know how to support diverse writers. How can we transcend our biases (conscious and unconscious) and avoid projecting our own values and experiences onto the text? What changes must we make to satisfy an increasingly diverse audience?

This half-day event will give editors, writers and publishing professionals practical skills for working with material from outside their own experience. Hear from presenters Bridget Caldwell, Carly Findlay and Kirstie Innes-Will, and moderator Marisa Wikramanayake.
