Every two months we publish two newsletters about copyediting and proofreading, one for members only (The Edit) and a free one for anyone who wishes to subscribe (Editorial Excellence).

The Edit

The Edit is our e-newsletter for CIEP members. It keeps you up to date with CIEP happenings, useful resources and editorial practice insights, including:

  • the latest CIEP articles for you to read

  • news about training, CPD and conference
  • insights from our forums
  • useful non-CIEP articles, resources and events
