Southeast ACES to gather

The next meeting of the Southeast chapter of the American Copy Editors Society is set. Here are the details:

WHEN: Sunday, Jan. 27, from 1 to 5 p.m.

WHERE: The Herald in Rock Hill, S.C.


  • Moderating a Web site and what it means for copy editors.
  • Sports as news: When does a sports story need to move into the news section? Who should handle the copy editing? Is a knowledge of sports necessary to properly handle such a story?
  • Lost on the campaign trail: With so much copy being generated in this election cycle and too little space, how can a copy editor find the wheat among the chaff? What can the copy desk do to help give readers the information they need in forms they can easily digest?
  • What’s Your Beef: A chance for copy editors to talk about what worries them or makes them angry.
