About the   local group

The coordinator of the   local group is .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

‘Friendly and enthusiastic’ would best sum up the   group. We are a mixture of newer copyeditors and proofreaders and a very experienced contingent, who generously and willingly share their expertise with the newbies. With a variety of experience and interests, there are plenty of opportunities to learn something from others in the group.

We meet at 12.30pm for lunch in a pub or restaurant in the Farnham/Guildford area. Often we have informal meetings where we discuss anything and everything, some of it work-related, but some meetings have a specific topic which we announce in advance.

Recent meetings have included a workshop with Claire Ruben on using proofreading stamps in PDFs and a session with Anne Waddingham on using Styles in Word.

Details of the venue and any topic will be announced at the beginning of the relevant month. Please let the meeting organiser know about a week before the meeting if you’re hoping to come.
