About the local group
The group was set up in November 2013 for the members of Gloucestershire, Herefordshire and Worcestershire.
We used to meet every two months in a small bistro in the centre of Ledbury, but sadly that venue is now closed and we’re on the lookout for somewhere else to meet for lunch once we can meet again in person. For the moment we are meeting about every three weeks by Zoom.
As we come from a wide variety of backgrounds and also work in different areas of the editing and proofreading world, there never seems to be a shortage of things to talk about, both work-related and not! In previous years we have organised a day workshop on macros (with Paul Beverley as speaker) as well as a visit to the library and archives of Gloucester Cathedral together with the Society of Bookbinders, and other, similar events can be organised on request. A training webinar on Efficient Copy-Editing is in the pipeline.
Details of upcoming meetings can be found in the Calendar of events.
