Senior Editing Manager Elizabeth LaPlante and Senior Editor Helen O’Guinn will lead a training session about editing government documents at the American Copy Editors Society (ACES) 2018 Conference in Chicago.
The training session, called “Editing for the Federal Government,” will cover applying plain language to government editing, establishing editing procedures and understanding when to be flexible on grammar and style guide rules. LaPlante and O’Guinn also plan to discuss proven ways for editors to effectively communicate with their clients and colleagues.
