About CIEP forums

CIEP forums is the set of online discussion groups available exclusively to individual members of the CIEP. Created in 2012 as a successor to our email discussion lists, CIEP forums is where members discuss all aspects of working as an editor or proofreader.

About CIEP forums Forum help

As ever, it is pretty great to put any question I want to the forum and be able to expect a sensible answer. I think it’s one of those member perquisites that would be difficult or too self-regarding to express on the CIEP website, e.g. ‘If you ask a thorny question, you’ll get good examples, personal experience, reasonable counterpoints, nuanced aspects you never thought of, analysis of changing mores, and some humour – basically a better answer than you could have paid for.’

The support you get from other CIEP members, who are so generous with their time and advice, is invaluable and so much appreciated. I just wish more people valued the forums and realised how much you can get out of them.

I am just overwhelmed by the amount of support on these forums and at events/meet ups. No matter the question or problem or bout of impostor syndrome that has hit me, I’ve always had thoughtful, considerate and excellent advice from so many of you and I can’t even begin to say how much that has helped me at a very scary time in my career.
