About the local group
The local group holds meetings roughly every two months, and newcomers are always welcome! Most of our meetings are social gatherings, either at lunchtime or in the evening, and we cover a wide range of topics including training, ideas for finding work and software recommendations. Occasionally we hold more formal sessions and these have included workshops on using macros and software to ensure consistency and increase efficiency, marking up PDFs, and building and marketing your business.
Because our members are spread far and wide across Kent, we try to vary our meeting locations, and have met in venues in Rochester, Canterbury, Faversham, Ashford, Maidstone, Tonbridge and Tunbridge Wells. We’re always interested in trying out new venues or activities, so if you have any ideas, or just want to come along to a meeting, please get in touch!
If you are not a CIEP member but are interested in becoming an editor/proofreader or are considering joining CIEP, then you are very welcome to come along and find out more. We are always happy to share knowledge and experiences. Non-members can attend up to three local meetings before deciding whether to join.
Details of upcoming meetings can be found in the Calendar of events.
