January 15, 2020: Peer Group “Ant”-ics

Our January meeting has been cancelled due to bad weather and travel warnings from the BC Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure and from Translink. We hope to re-schedule the meeting for February. In the meantime, please stay safe and warm!

What: Editors BC monthly meeting
When: Wednesday, January 15, 2020, 7:00–9:00 pm
Where: New room | Room 916, 9th floor, Central Library, 350 West Georgia Street, Vancouver | map
Cost: Free for Editors BC members, non-members, and students.

Are you a solitary worker ant, dealing with professional isolation in your office, freelance business, or region? Do you want to discuss victories, challenges, and resources with others in your field? Would you like to create a colony of support and learning? Join us at our next monthly meeting for a panel discussion led by Editors BC member Lynn Slobogian on how peer groups can help you.

Bring your questions and be part of the conversation with Lynn and our guests Heather Ross, Ellen Michelle, Letitia Henville, and Wendy Barron. They’ll share their personal experience of creating and maintaining peer groups, including mastermind groups using Skype and Facebook, an in-person editing book club, and an accountability group on Slack. They’ll also discuss their processes, the value peer groups have brought to their professional and personal lives, and some important tips they’ve learned along the way. Learn how to go from solo ant to particip-ant in your own colony!

Lynn Slobogian is an experienced editor and speaker. She has developed and delivered dozens of interactive presentations to diverse audiences across the country and is known for her relaxed and engaging presentation style. She was professional development chair/co-chair for Editors BC from 2015 to 2017 and co-chair of Editors Canada’s 2016 national conference in Vancouver. Lynn and three colleagues started a mastermind group in January 2017 and have never looked back.
