About the local group
The Edinburgh local group was resurrected in the autumn of 2014 after a gap of 13 years. The group usually meets on the last Thursday evening of the month with a break during the summer. All members and Friends, as well as non-members thinking about joining the SfEP, are welcome to come along.
Meetings usually take place in a pub in central Edinburgh with time at the end for everyone to mingle and chat over a drink. Each meeting has a main topic for discussion such as managing finances, editing theses and dissertations, setting fees and using macros.
While meetings are a great way to get to know other members of our local editing community, not everyone can make it along on a regular basis and the Edinburgh group forum is also a useful platform for raising editorial questions and sharing views. We welcome input from everyone, either at meetings or through the local forum, on the group's future development, topics for discussion, visits and social gatherings, etc.
A detailed introduction to the local group, including the many benefits to be gained from being a part of an SfEP local group, can be found on the SfEP blog.
Details of upcoming meetings can be found in the Calendar of events.
