In March 2020, the SfEP will become the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading (CIEP), and the CIEP’s first annual conference will take place at Kents Hill Park, a purpose-built conference and training centre in Milton Keynes, on 12–14 September. Offering hotel-style accommodation and modern conference rooms, the venue is conveniently located for access by both rail and road. There is also a Nuffield Health sports and leisure centre on-site for use by guests, with a fully equipped gym, swimming pool and sauna, along with spa and beauty treatments.
The provisional programme will be released before booking opens in March, and will feature a mix of high-quality workshops and seminars on various aspects of editing and proofreading, as well as running your own business and developments in the publishing world. If you would like to suggest a topic or speaker (it could even be you!), please email the conference director as soon as possible (firstname.lastname@example.org).
