Past Meetings and Events

To the best of our ability, we take notes and/or record our member meetings for members who could not be present (accessing past meeting notes and videos is a members-only benefit, though the most recent meeting video will always be publicly available). Even more archival material coming soon!

The Northwest Editors Guild is committed to ongoing education and professional development for editors in the region; we also value opportunities for networking and camaraderie. One way we pursue these goals is by presenting a daylong conference for editors and other word lovers every two years. For information about our conferences, past and future, please check our Red Pencil Conferences page

State of the Guild Addresses

The president of the Northwest Editors Guild traditionally delivers a State of the Guild address at the annual members potluck, notifying members of what has been accomplished in the past year and often what the board of directors hopes to accomplish in coming years. When possible, they are saved for posterity.
