San Diego Professional Editors Network logoFrom the May 2016 newsletter

You Are Invited: SDW/EG members are invited to join the San Diego Professional Editors Network (SD/PEN) at its Thursday, May 19th meeting from 6:30 – 8:30 PM for a presentation titled “Editing Non-Native English Speakers”.

Kim Lagwali, program coordinator of the TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) Certificate Program at UCSD Extension, will examine the use of the middle voice in English (as compared to active and passive voice) and explain why it can be a significant source of confusion for many nonnative English speakers. Her presentation will help editors recognize this problem and find the best solutions for correcting it. SD/PEN meets at the same location as SDW/EG.
