How to help the next generation of editors
The education fund of the American Copy Editors Society is dedicated to helping college students who are interested in careers as editors. This year, ACES gave a total of $6,500 to five students and helped pay for their travel to the national conference in Philadelphia.
Here’s how you can help the fund:
- Attend the national conference and participate in the silent auction, which brought in more than $3,000 this year, including the $10 I spent on a Times-Picayune T-shirt.
- Buy a Talk Wordy To Me mug or shirt. Thanks to copy editor/blogger Brian White for giving profits of these items to the fund.
- Use Goodsearch, a search engine that gives some money to the charity of your choice every time you look for something online. Designate “American Copy Editors Society Education Fund” as your charity.
- Download a form and donate to the fund directly. Your gift is tax deductible.
Thank you for your support.
