Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading annual conference

Kents Hill Park, Milton Keynes

Saturday 12 September to Monday 14 September 2020

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 (
