Susan Butler announced as a conference keynote speaker

Posted on: 04 October 2018

Susan Butler was the editor of the Macquarie Dictionary, Australia’s national dictionary and, as editor, was largely responsible for the selection and writing of new words. In 2017, the seventh edition of the dictionary was published with a revised and updated range of dictionaries in print and online, and in digital and app formats. Sue is a regular commentator on Australian English on radio, television and online.

The biennial 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. In 2019, the conference theme will be beyond the page, 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 opportunities to socialise and network, including a welcome reception, a Melbourne Noir à la mode-themed Gala Dinner, tours, breakfast and dinner gatherings, exhibitions, book sales and much more.

The ninth IPEd National Editors Conference is being hosted by Editors Victoria at the Pullman Melbourne on the Park from 8–10 May 2019, and registration is now open. Visit iped2019.org.au/register for details.
