Publishing is changing as new technology is enabling author and editor collaboration, integrated editorial and production, and rapid publication to print, Web, ebook and mobile.
Carolyn Brown, a writer–editor and publishing consultant, will talk about the new technologies for editing and publishing and their impact on the processes of editing and production. This presentation, free for EAC members, and $10 for non-members, will take place at 7:30 pm at the monthly speaker’s night at the Capital Hill Hotel & Suites, 88 Albert Street. Preregistration is not required.
How will these changes affect editors? What skills will we need and what environment will we face in the publication process of the future? Collaboration platforms, content management systems, XML-based publishing, and the next generation of desktop publishing that incorporates editorial and output will be discussed.
