The October event was a beauty, with five published experts telling a big crowd what they want from their editors. Our final event for the year will be the Christmas event on 6 December.

Although the year is winding down, there are a couple of great training opportunities, one a course and one a webinar, in November. We get a sneak peek at next year’s courses, and read about Peter Riches' recent course on business software.

Melbourne Indexers are also welcoming our members to their meetings – there’s one tonight and one on 6 December (although that does clash with our Christmas party). Claire Kelly tested her editing skills on indexes at their October meeting and tells us how it went.

I’m sure you will have seen posts and received emails about next year’s conference. We’ve got a great summary of all the info to date.

This month’s tip is about using your computer screen for a few shortcuts, and our funny pic comes all the way from South Australia.

Have a great month,
