As I mentioned in a previous post, Copyediting magazine asked me to present a webinar for their subscribers and the general public called InCopy for Editors. Unfortunately, it took us too long to resolve some initial technical difficulties (oh you gotta love them computers—but we figured it out) during the originally-scheduled presentation, so we had to cancel it and reschedule.
To make it easier for those companies to find a compatible date, we’re going to do the exact same webinar twice over the next two weeks. That means there are more seats available for any new attendees; and happily, the $50 discount code they gave me is still valid for either of the new sessions. I’m assuming most people visiting this blog are already using InCopy, but maybe not, or maybe you have a colleague who’s still suffering under the yoke of paper mark-up and would appreciate the info I’ll be presenting. Please send them this URL.
Editing in InCopy, a 60-minute interactive webinar
- Date 1: Tuesday, March 31, 2009; 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. (Eastern)
- Date 2: Tuesday, April 7, 2009; 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. (Eastern)
- You just need a web browser and a phone connection to participate.
- Webinar fee is per connecting site, not per attendee (e.g., you could have your whole staff attend in a conference room for a single registration fee).
- $50 Discount code: Please enter the word “GEEKNESS” in the field marked “Promo Code” on the registration form, or call McMurry (the publisher) at 888-0303-2373, to register at the special rate of $179 (a $50 savings) per dial-in site. The regular price, $229, will be reflected on your online receipt, but your card will be charged the lower rate.
I’m aiming the content at editors and writers (as opposed to designers), to introduce them to InCopy and the InCopy/InDesign workflow and how InCopy compares to and can work with Word. I’ll show how files are shared between the two programs, cross-platform, and answer your specific questions during a final Q&A. If the Q&A extends beyond the end of the session, I’m okay with staying longer if you are. :-).
If you’ll be attending and you have some specific questions, please e-mail me beforehand and I’ll try my best to address them during my presentation (or I’ll let you know if it’s outside of the scope of the session).
Participants will receive a PDF handout of the slides/key points afterwards.
