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!

July 8, 2019: Nuances of Editing for Global Audiences

January 14, 2019: 2018 Year in Review Roundtable (no notes or video)


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.

Join the Guild or follow us on Facebook or Twitter to receive updates about the next conference. If you’d like to help with the conference, e-mail us with the subject line “Conference volunteer.”

Coming Soon!

Our next conference will be held on September 21, 2019, on the campus of Bastyr University in Kenmore, Washington. Watch out for more information coming soon!
